Music video[edit]

The music video is set during a performance in a bar and features stage Natalie diving into the audience, originally Nicole was supposed to do the stage dive but she chickened out at the last moment - with the excuse that they didn't put down the mattress - and her sister had to show her how it was done. They didn't have an idea for the song except that they wanted to do it live and recorded it on the spot.

There is another version of the video with an alternate ending, showing Natalie and Nicole walking down a subway after the gig discussing the fight that breaks out in the video.
