The song's music video features a dark room with two projection screens. A white light continuously flickers in the room as confetti is raining down. The screens alternate between images of the band performing this song at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, a woman in a room that either shows her underwater or surrounded by fire raining down on her, and shots of a coffee mug falling to the floor and shattering. On occasion, the song's lyrics will also flash on either screen.
This video was directed by Robert Hales and Mark Racco.
