The music video is set in a club with people dancing whilst the singer sings in the middle of the dance floor. It shows clips of a couple running away and later kissing passionately. The video was uploaded onto YouTube on 5 September 2008, when it was uploaded onto Hard2Beat's official channel. The main video has received more than 11 million views as of March 2016. In the video Sash! is playing and can be seen in the background, there is also shots of Stunt's singer, Molly Smitten-Downes singing in the club when it is empty and others of her sat on a bench. When the words "Encore Une Fois" are first heard the camera cuts to a shot of a woman's cleavage, this was seen as inappropriate by some viewers and the shot was cut out from some music channels.
