Music video[edit]

The music video features a dream sequence of a geeky man (Beeny Royston), who is sunbathing on the beach wearing a raincoat and orange speedos. He spots a young woman in her bikini in a beach house behind him, and she invites him into the house, into an all-girls' party. Many shots and the setting resemble Aphex Twin's Windowlicker video. At the end of the video the viewer finds out that he was daydreaming and that when he appeared to be kissing a girl he was actually kissing his dog.

The same beach house was used for the Bear Hug video by The 2 Bears.
