Music video[edit]

The animated music video (directed by Ethan Segal and Albert Thrower)[3] uses a combination of photography and cutout animation. It shows faceless, paper versions of the three members of the band playing instruments against photographic backgrounds of apartments. The band plays the song while colorful bubbles float out of their instruments, eventually filling the apartments. The bubbles are then released through windows and are shown floating over various photographic backgrounds of New York City. As the bubbles escape the apartments, the musicians are dismembered and their limbs float over New York City as though they are bubbles.
