Music Video

PV Shot

The music video for "Chase" was directed by Sunaga Hideaki and produced by Toyomura Keiichi of SEP.

It features Kuu in a hotel as two different people: a jewel thief under the guise of a maid/room service worker and an implied bank robber. Under the guise of a brightly-dressed maid Kuu sneaks into hotel rooms to steal people's valuables. The robber is lounging in a bed in the same hotel, being spied on by a lewd FBI agent. At the end of the video, a half-dozen police officers arrive, running down the hall. The jewel thief thinks she's being apprehended, tries to run, falls, and braces herself for an arrest; they run past her however, and burst into the robber's room where they uncover a briefcase filled with stacks of money. After watching the robber being escorted past her, the jewel thief makes her way easily out of the hotel, large gemstone in hand.
