3OH!3 was among the line-up of the Warped Tour 2008 where they met Katy Perry. The band then toured with her on the UK dates of her Hello Katy Tour in February 2009. They said of Perry's participation to the song: "Katy did this because we toured with Katy, we are good friends with Katy and we worked on the song together — we worked on the remix together."

The music video for the song was premiered by AOL on Monday, June 8, 2009. A "behind the scenes" of the music video has been released prior to the release date. It was filmed in Los Angeles, California and directed by Sum 41's drummer, Steve Jocz. According to Rolling Stone, the video showcases throngs of girls dressed in fluorescent wardrobe chasing 3OH!3, a large clothed orgy with construction workers, a marching band and copious amounts of whipped cream. Jocz said the concept is a bunch of people getting clustered together until the eventually formed a massive dogpile. According to group member, Sean Foreman, "the video is looking awesome."
Sean Foreman commented on the video to an interview with MTV. He said the following:
There's a mat on the floor and there's liquid spilled all over the place [...] The concept of the video is one that we brainstormed up. It has to do with a dog pile and crazy body parts and hot legs and boobs and football players. There are all sorts of body fluids involved. Different types. Blood, spit, a couple we can't mention. You're going to see people flying off a doggy pile, like, flying up into the atmosphere, and at the end, it's revealed it's in reverse motion, so it's just people dog-piling on us. It's movie magic, because we're actually not even in the video. They're CGI-ing taller, better looking people in our places. It works out well."
