“The Code” focuses on the journey to one’s true self, with all its ups and downs. The official music video is shown in several moving train cars. The following key moments are hidden in it:

  • If you look closely, you can see where the journey is going in the first few seconds: The route from Zurich to Malmö, the venue for this year's ESC conference, is shown on the map on the train.
  • Nemo checks passengers' tickets in an elegant outfit. Anyone who pays special attention will recognize something special. Nemo checks the ticket of the person who has the same painted nails. Cue Nemo holding the ticket to the destination (aka the path to happiness) in his hands?!
  • However, at that moment the entire train begins to shake, the lights dim, and panic spreads. Nemo changes his appearance every second, running from one train car to another looking confused and helpless. Musical styles change: from pop to rap to opera… Nemo seems stuck in an endless loop – in constant motion, but the goal seems out of reach.
  • At one point, Nemo, exhausted, sits on a seat on the train and softly sings to himself: “Somewhere between the O's and the Ones. This is where I found my kingdom. My heart beats like a drum.” At that moment Nemo realizes there is still a ticket! Nemo takes this out of his pocket and notices how the ticket turns into a mirror… The Mirror Ticket is the token that everyone holds as the key to themselves.
  • Nemo jumps, changes outfits with confidence, laughs happily, radiates pure freedom and appears to be filled with happiness. The code has been broken! Nemo makes a decision to swim against the tide of society, to live all the diversity within himself, and to come out as non-binary.
