The video starts with Emily Haines walking into her living room and inserting Metric's Live It Out record into her record player. As soon as the song starts, the screen turns black and white and hands pull Emily through her carpet. During the first verse, the video interlopes with Emily singing on the floor in the living room and on a bed. When the first chorus begins, we see Jimmy Shaw playing the guitar covered in blood, while Emily sings. Hands are reaching through the roof and walls, trying to grab her (a reference to the 1965 Roman Polanski film Repulsion). During the second verse, Emily is walking down a hallway, looking around in fear as she continues to sing. We go back to Jimmy Shaw during the second chorus. During the bridge and final chorus, blood begins to leak from a lightbulb, a power socket, a television set, and other appliances (probably a reference to Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead). When the song ends, the screen becomes coloured again, and Emily sighs in relief, apparently just dreaming.
