Music video[edit]

The music video directed by Jeremy Rall adapts the video concept of Tupac Shakur's 1995 single "Temptations", where the viewer is guided through a "Maniac Mansion" called the Jackpot Inn, in which every room has a special feature including a sleeproom, a pillow fight room (room 102), Jamaican smoke room (room 103), a neon glow room (fitness room) and there's also a Brady Bunch parody with a 3x3 checked screen segment. Also in the video is a man set to look like Tupac, and one of the three in the front of the Jackpot Inn sign wears a shirt that parodies the Holiday Inn logo featuring the band's name and another wearing a shirt that parodies The Home Depot logo as "The Ho Depot".

The video for "Holidae In" was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video in 2004.
