Music video[edit]

The music video of this song satirizes today's music industry, and shows how music videos no longer relate to what the song is actually about. It begins with the group sitting with a record company executive, who is the band's actual manager. They begin to discuss making a music video, and the band states they "Have some good ideas". The executive tells them that All Time Low will use his methods for making a successful video. Method 1 is product placement, and he surrounds the band members with Rockstar products. Method 2 is to sell sex to the viewers, and dress the group like the members from Jersey Shore. Alex, Zack, and Rian are surrounded by bikini-clad girls, while Jack is awkwardly placed next to two scantily-clad men. The final method used by the executive is stealing people's ideas. He puts costumes on the band from various popular music videos. Some of the music videos that are being targeted include "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga, "Baby" by Justin Bieber and "California Gurls" by Katy Perry. At the end, All Time Low is left feeling disgusted, and they go home.
