The music video is about how an average guy (DJ Qualls) attempts to impress a popular girl (Eliza Dushku) by attempting to perform dangerous stunts, but other, more popular boys interrupt to take his place. They fail to succeed and are injured, and the main characters look on with pained expressions of pity and a certain amount of schadenfreude. There is also a surreal sequence, in which the archetypal popular boy, played by rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist Sebastien Lefebvre, is hit by a school bus. The video was made with actors from the movie The New Guy, such as DJ Qualls and Tony Hawk. As such, it was released as an extra on the DVD of The New Guy. As well, in the video, there is a clip of Tony Hawk taken from the final football game in the movie. Most of the scenes in the video were filmed at Long Beach Polytechnic High School in Long Beach, California.
