Music video[edit]

A music video was made for the song, and directed by Tinchy Stryder and music video director Luke Monaghan, who also was one of the three directors of the video for Stryder's 2011 hit single Spaceship, and was uploaded to Tinchy Stryder's official YouTube channel on Thursday, 11 November 2010, at a total length of four minutes and eight seconds.[2] The video was filmed in a Jet Center, and finds Stryder chopping out his rhymes and boasting, over "harsh lurching beats and heavy riffs, about "how people are jealous of him because he's famous", a line which he bellows at every opportunity, whilst the film camera is closely fixed on his every movement throughout the length of the video.[2]
