The video has raised significant attention on many of the world’s largest music websites, including those of the Billboard list, Entertainment Weekly and Spin Magazine. On Sunday, 117,000 people had watched the video, Fréttabladid reports.

Some viewers thought seven-year-old Helgi Rúnar Bjarnason from Skagafjördur in north Iceland stole the scene in the video as he walks among some of Iceland’s best known natural wonders. “It was a lot of fun and not that hard at all,” he commented.
