Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Tobias Hansson in Stockholm, Sweden.[3] It depicts a story about a middle-aged mother who cannot hide from her past by leaving her family in the night as a modern-day cougar catching young hipster boys at a partying nightclub to spend and make out with.[4][5]

Cultural impact[edit]

The song was included on Swedish House Mafia's debut album Until One in 2010.[6] The song was also included on the compilation album Now: The Hits of Summer 2011.

It was also featured on an episode of the British TV comedy, Some Girls.

Greenpeace have used the song in an advertisement[7] targeting Coca-Cola for its stance against Container deposit legislation in Australia. This ad was banned by the Nine Network and has since become popular on YouTube.
