Music video[edit]

In an interview Chad Kroeger said they wanted to get Kevin Costner to star as the father in the video. Costner asked Chad Kroeger to be in one of their videos when they met previously. But when shooting for the video came along he was unable to make it.

Jessa Danielson, Don Broach and Craig Anderson play the three roles in the video. The video was shot in late January, 2009 with long-time collaborator Nigel Dick directing the video. The video was released on March 23, 2009, in Canada. The video shows a father arriving home to find his daughter on her way out to go on a date with her boyfriend. Later on the boyfriend tries to sexually assault the daughter who makes two frantic calls to her father, one a text message with the same numbers, 77, in a photograph of the daughter and the father by a baseball field. He realizes she is in a situation at the baseball ground, therefore he goes looking for her. He arrives in time to pull the young man out of the car and punch him twice, then drives off with her crying in his arms.
