Music video[edit]

Filmed in Sydney during August 2010, the video for the song was directed by Dan Reisinger and is based on the film Mr. & Mrs. Smith.[3] The video starts off with a romantic dinner that triggers an explosive domestic dispute. Throughout the rest of the video, Goodrem is seen throwing a glass of red wine, aiming at McFadden's forehead and starts bleeding.[3] She also throws his watch in a blender and smashes one of his platinum discs.[3] She then uses the disc to slice his guitar while he retaliates by using the chainsaw to turn Goodrem's piano into firewood.[3] McFadden is also seen putting Goodrem's teddy bear in the microwave to see how long it takes to heat it up, until it blows up the kitchen.
