Cover versions[edit]

On numerous occasions during live shows, the band substitutes the second verse of the song with the first two verses of "Digital Love" by Daft Punk.

DJ Chris Moyles performed a parody of the song called "Beer in Your Arms" on his show on BBC Radio 1.

South African singer Nicholis Louw recorded an Afrikaans version, "Hier Naby Jou" (Here Next to You).

Wizard rock band Ministry of Magic also recorded a filk of the song, titled "Here In Your Car", about Harry Potter and Ron Weasley's friendship as they are flying from London to Hogwarts in the Weasleys' enchanted blue Ford Anglia.

Music video[edit]

The video is set at Camp Holadios, a fictional summer camp. While the band members are all staying there, Forrest becomes interested in a girl who is also at camp. The campers play with pogs. At the end of the video, the sign states "Summer of '91". The video is also reminiscent of the film Wet Hot American Summer. One of the references to this movie is when Forrest puts on the headband and sunglasses similar to the change that "Coop" undergoes to win the affection of a girl with the same name, "Katie". Chewing gum is another major reference, where campers in the film are seen chewing gum before they kiss. The camp's name is "Hellogoodbye" in Spanish.
