Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Jim Canty, and was shot at an ex-Ministry of Defence site, located in Longcross, Chertsey. The site was also used for the filming of BBC drama HolbyBlue. The music video features people miming the song whilst sitting outside on the ground at night, as their clothes gradually change from light to dark shades, then back to light again. Blunt appears every so often as one of the people singing the song.
