"Refugee", the new video from Norwegian/British hard rockers TNT, can be viewed below.
When TNT's Ronni Le Tekrø (guitar) and Tony Mills (vocals) wrote the song, they were inspired by refugees in Toten and their invisibility in society.
The track and its theme aroused the enthusiasm of the Norwegian Refugee Council and a collaboration ensued. This resulted in a video that presents both the band live on stage and refugee issues with the NRC in large parts of the world.
Both parties hope the video will increase the focus on some of the most hopeless situations refugees experience and thus generate financial support for this work.
The clip, which tool a few months to complete, will be used worldwide by the NRC, the UN, and TNT networks worldwide.
Commented TNT: "This video is one of the last things our beloved keyboardist Dag Stokke participated in before he left us April 26, 2011. We dedicate the video to the memory of our beloved Dag Stokke for his love, his friendship and his tireless work for TNT, as well as all the world's people who are on the run! We lit the peace of Dag Stokke memory!"
