Music video[edit]

The video, directed by James Cox and produced by Justin Cronkite, features the band playing in a Chicago Transit Authority 'L' train with a small mosh pit, and shots of a group of office workers sneaking out at night doing various activities. They include swapping a video of soldiers in peacetime to soldiers in wartime, replacing a bumper sticker that reads "Four More Years" to "One More Month," drawing plastic surgery marks on a poster for a model, putting a sticker on a tiger cage at a zoo that reads, "I've spent my entire life trapped in a cage," and writing "42 grams of heart attack" on a McDonalds billboard advertising the Big Mac. In the end they dress into office clothes and go to work. Just before it ends, one of the office workers slaps the same sticker put on the tiger cage on the CEO's door.
