The music video was filmed in Los Angeles on the 10th and 11 of January 2001, and was directed by Spencer Susser. It takes place in a party, with the band playing in the background. The protagonist is a man trying to get some sexual action in the form of the song's meaning (domination from a girl) but with each try he is slapped and left feeling embarrassed. As this takes place the party-goers start to open up cans with the Offspring logo on them. These explode violently with foam when opened leading to the party starting to get chaotic.
Eventually the man finds a woman who is willing to participate in his desired activity and the two go off to a private place. Meanwhile the party has descended into utter chaos as the foam covers even the band and some of them are tackled to the ground by the partiers, though the music still plays.
In the closing moments of the video we see the woman shaking one of the Offspring cans in front of the man. The man looks on excited as it finally explodes - the foam appears to blow his head off while the woman laughs and smiles as the camera fades to black.
The second model in the music video played Katelyn Rosaasen the first model is unknown.
The music video also appears on the Complete Music Video Collection DVD. It was released in 2005.
