Singers Andrea Ferro and Cristina Scabbia accepted the award for the "Spellbound" clip, which was shot at the Dolce & Gabbana Gold restaurant in the band's hometown of Milan with director Saku. It was produced by Apnea Film and the wardrobe was provided by Dolce & Gabbana. Commented Scabbia: "We had a great time shooting the video for 'Spellbound' and it also mark[ed] our first time working with acclaimed Italian director Saku in a location that's really peculiar. It was filmed in a very fashionable place: the restaurant Gold located in Milan, Italy, which owned by the fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana, who kindly gave us the permission to film over there! The location provide[d] the perfect atmosphere to express the 'Shallow Life' theme. Everything is really shiny and 'bling bling' and the band is performing in the middle of a golden room full of mirrors and giant chandeliers. The story [was] rounded out by some actors that are interpreting different aspects of being under a spell of something: the girl obsessed by her weight and look, the guy who wants to be a superman, the politician etc."
