Music video[edit]

The official music video for the song, directed by Emil Nava,[2] was uploaded onto Calvin Harris' Vevo channel on 15 October 2014. It has since been viewed over 9,000,000 times. It features a woman in blue going around in a city at night under the influence of drugs and alcohol, the blue colour indicating that she is under severe drug and alcohol use and has a hangover. She wakes up the next day lying on a road looking normal, apparently recovered from the hangover she experienced the previous night.
