There are two videos for the song, one for Australia and one for the United States. The Australian video premiered at midnight (12am AEST) on 26 June 2007 via Higgins' MySpace page. The video was directed by Australian filmmakers Paul Goldman and Alice Bell, who were also responsible for Silverchair's "Straight Lines" video. The US video uses a more uptempo mix of the song which is also the version played on American radio stations, rather than the version that appears on the album. Both videos can be seen on Higgins' website.
