Music video[edit]

The music video was inspired by the 1967 film The Graduate. It stars the band performing the song on a theater stage with a crew working around them. A family appears at the start of the second verse having an outdoor party with a pool. The ending shows Tom stopping a wedding and running off with the bride.
