On one scene, O'Mara chases Cornell through the streets. During his escape, Cornell crashes to a fast-running car but somehow manages to survive.

"We shot it on the street there, and we didn't have any extras or anything. It was really just a small crew and me, and a lot of it's just me on the streets of Brooklyn, intercut with footage from 'Life on Mars'," Cornell revealed to MTV News about the whole filming process of the video. "I interacted with people on the street during the shoot, unbeknownst to them, so it was pretty funny. I'd just walk up to people and shake their hand or start talking to them. Everyone was really polite and didn't know what to do. Most of them were just trying to figure out what the hell we were doing down there."

"Ground Zero" is a song written by Cornell himself teaming up with Jim Beanz and Larry Gold based on the story of September-11 attacks. The track comes off Cornell's upcoming -produced effort, "", which will hit the U.S. stores early next year.
