Like when the Madness video was going to be released, Muse released 5 animated gifs on their tumblr site, previewing the video on April 19, 2013.

It was filmed in January 2013 in Japan during "The 2nd Law" tour in that country, prior to the Tokyo Zepp gig. The video was filmed by Kirk and Tim Qualtrough.

Part 1 of the behind the scenes footage, released in 2020, can be seen here. Part 2 can be seen here.

Rising Sun Flag Controversy

0:33-0:38 of the Panic Station video featured the Rising Sun flag

The original video featured the Rising Sun flag in the intro. This drew the ire of many YouTube users, thus causing the band to apologise and re-upload a new version of the video, which replaced the Rising Sun flag with the Japanese flag.
