"Bonnie & Clyde" is a romantic song about a man and a woman, who want to play Bonnie and Clyde - criminals that are in love with each other. At the start of the song, the two have never met before, but the man knows she's the one he's been missing.
The music video was directed by Ralf Schmerberg.
In the video, the two meet in jail and after they're released, they start committing crimes together, starting with stealing a car. Then they perform an armed robbery on a cash-in-transit and make love in a hotel. The next morning, thy are woken up by a police squad coming to arrest them. They are brought to jail, but they escape with the help of their bandmates (the man is played by Campino). The woman gets shot and the gang tries to escape in a car (with "ON TOUR" written on it), but the driver (played by Andi) also gets shot and they crash the car, which results in a fatal explosion.
