Imagine Dragons blast into space with the release of their latest video for “On Top of the World.”

While their song “Demons” climbs past No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, Las Vegas’ Imagine Dragons has already set their eyes on the next prize with the release of a video accompaniment to their uplifting fan favorite “On Top Of The World,” the third single from Night Visions. With lyrics describing weightlessness it only makes sense that directors Matt Eastin and Corey Fox chose to set the video’s them around the band traveling to space. Well, sort of.

The video plays on the long-held conspiracy theory that astronaut Neil Armstrong’s famous first moonwalk was indeed staged and President Nixon was in on the world-class Hollywood stunt.

Also as an Easter Egg, see if you can spot an anagram of the band’s name. (Hint: It’s in the first 40 seconds of the video) According to the band, Imagine Dragons is an anagram but none of the members are willing to reveal its unscrambled origin. “We haven’t even told our families,” Reynolds told Radio.com during an exclusive interview. “I don’t know if they’d forgive us if we broke it right now. We’d have to have a big meeting with all of the guys to see if they wanted to do it.”

“At this point, it’s been built up so much that anything we say is going to be a letdown,” added Wayne Sermon, the band’s guitarist. “We might just leave it up to everyone’s imaginations. They probably have better guesses than the real answer.”

Currently on tour in the UK, the Imagine Dragons will return stateside in February 2014 for their extensive Into The Night Tour.
