The four-minute video features Samoa extensively.

It shows members of the group arriving in Samoa and meeting with fans here.

It showcases Samoan dances as well as shots of Apia and the meetings they had in the villages where one of the band members is drinking ava.

It also features Aggie Grey’s Beach Resort, where they stayed, as well as the concert at Apia Park, arguably the biggest concert in the history of Samoa.
