The video was shot by Mid C Media at iCream, a trendy ice cream shop in Chicago, Illinois. The video was directed by Ken Koller and produced by Koller himself, Jay Chokshi, and executive producers Raghav Mathur and Ranadeb Choudhury.
The video starts with Raghav entering the ice cream store with his friend (J Niice of B96 FM Chicago). In most of the video, Raghav is following a feminine love interest (played by model Danielle Fornarelli) as she moves around the shop, or Raghav is singing and dancing with prominence of red and blue lens used in most of the video, or just black and white shots. The song's producer Labrinth does his own thing at the background of the Raghav shots. Kardinal Offishal joins in towards the end of the video dueting with Raghav. The final scene shows an ordinary man tasting his own choice order of ice cream.
