Music video[edit]

This song was written by Jason Mraz, who went on to shoot a music video. The video starts with Jason Mraz in a pink shirt on the street in the city of Venice Beach, CA promoting his second studio album, Mr. A-Z. He wears a pink shirt that reads OTAKU (means 'geek' in Japanese). He continues to promote the record while letting people listen to the CD by giving them headphones. The video then moves to Jason sitting in the back of someone's truck listening to his own song, "Geek in the Pink." The video then moves from the city, to the boardwalk, then to the beach, while he is still promoting the new album. At one point on the boardwalk he buys and wears pink flip-flop sandals. The video continues to show all of the previous shots, with the video ending with him and his two friends falling down on the beach at sunset. The video then fades to black. Video premiered on December 19, 2005.
