An extended infomercial parody was also released on a promotional site for the single and later on the Black Eyed Peas website.
The music video for "Get Original" was set in an empty canyon. Black Eyed Peas are seen singing and break dancing in the video. Chali 2na is not featured in the video, however Taboo raps a verse in his place.
