Music video[edit]

A music video was released for the single filmed by Aggressive. The black and white video was directed by Alex Topaller and Dan Shapiro and produced by Shapiro and Kelvin Carver. The video featuring Pharrell Williams who makes cameo appearance in the video. The video shot in black and white shows Cris Cab strumming his guitar, or singing or in a relationship with some mysterious women. The video is an array of such women, an "arresting symmetry""[1] in light and in shadow about some dangerous relationships with these attractive women showing off with their parallel mirrored images. Visuals and bits of intimate narrative are revealed and obscured by these reflections, teasing the viewer that there is tantalizing truth to be revealed. The video end with one of the women "capturing" Cab and tying him to a chair.
