Video[edit]

A video was produced for this song. The video begins with cEvin Key in a graveyard with a child. The scene then moves to an office where a man, while working, has a heart attack and dies. In the graveyard Key begins filling in an open grave filled with various office supplies, while this is occurring Ogre is singing a refrain that contains the line, "execute economic slave." The video features a curious style of letterboxing, that utilizes the extra space at the top and bottom of the screen with various distorted imagery.
