The video for "Shutterbugg" premiered on 28 May 2010 via Big Boi's Vevo site. It was directed by Chris Robinson and premiered on May 26, 2010. The video's concept incorporates various scenes that accentuate different lines from Big Boi's lyrics. On its concept, Big Boi said in an interview for MTV, "It goes with the rhymes. Chris Robinson was definitely onboard [with the concept]. What he took from the song was a lyrical, visual adventure. There's a lot of special stuff going on. He's freaking the visuals like I'm freaking the rhymes". Scenes in the music video include Big Boi rapping on a mountain of sneakers, a wall of red disposable cups and four kegs forming a backdrop, a group of puppets serving as a backing band, and a "buxom beauty" holding the disembodied head of Big Boi in the crook of her arm. Simon Vozick-Levinson of Entertainment Weekly wrote that the video "boasts appropriately nutty imagery to go with the song’s wild sound".
