Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Raul B. Fernandez. The video begins, as various teens prepare and as they head off to what appears to be a camp. At the camp, the band starts playing. During Lovato's verse, she walks through the teens as they throw pillows at each other. Later, the teens throw such things as a bucket of chocolate, Silly String, water balloons and toilet paper at each other. In the end, the teens are covered with their stuff. The video ends, as Lovato and Travis Clark, lead singer of the band, look at each other.
