The respresentatives of Russia in Eurovision 2014, Tolmachevy Twins, presented the official video of their entry. The director of the video is a famous Russian stylist and photographer, Aslan Akhmadov, who created a specific style of black-and-white with the New York of the 1960s as a background for the story. Ruslan was previously a member of the fashion-trio “Fresh Art” who were liable for the style of the Armenian participants in Eurovision 2009, Arshakyan Sisters. Philip Kirkorov was the one who invited him for a cooperation to provide a brilliant result for the twins in Copenhagen.
Aslan tempted to imitate the style of ABBA who once managed to conquer the attention of the audience by their simplicity. Banal black-and-white colors bring back the tradition of simple but legendary hits sparkling in the Eurovision history.
