Music video[edit]

It is said that Joseph Kahn directed the music video for "Everyday", although this is not confirmed on his website. The music video shows the band performing in New Mexico by the VLA Radio Telescopes, while different cities around the world are "hit" by numerous red TV boxes (Bon Jovi appears on the screens as the huge telescopes send out the signal all over the world). The people from these cities seem to be bored, but as soon they watch the TVs, they "start having fun".
