Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by the Renck brothers: Johan Renck, last seen helming Madonna's Hung Up video, and Martin Renck, last seen directing the aforementioned first Cardigans single of the same album. It starts with a scene of a woman sitting at an old table, opening a music box. As she looks inside, a crystal ball on the table is shown with an image of a Séance with five people holding hands at the table inside of it. The next scene shows Nina Persson sitting at the table with a blonde, a redhead, a brunette and a raven-haired woman dressed in unusual clothing. The scene shifts to the woman from the beginning (the brunette) carrying furniture through a forest. Back at the table, she disappears, and becomes replaced with a male band member, wearing similar clothing to hers. As the video goes on, the blonde is shown riding through the forest in a carriage driven by a hooded figure in black, also disappearing from the table and being replaced by a band member in similar clothing. The same thing happens to the redhead, who is shown constrained underwater in an algae-like fashion, and the raven-haired woman, who appears to be in a small boat in a lake, calling out for someone. The video ends with Persson at the table with the rest of the band, all of them now male and the women gone, holding hands.
