Music video[edit]

The music video was done and directed by Marc Webb. Webb previously worked with Blaqk Audio members Davey Havok and Jade Puget for AFI's "The Days of the Phoenix", "The Leaving Song Pt. II", "Miss Murder", and "Love Like Winter". In an interview Davey Havok said the video was shot in Marc Webb's basement. While on the talk show Loveline on April 30, 2009, Havok mentioned that it just "didn't work out" and will not be released. Some of the footage was shown during one of their shows while they were on tour and featured Havok in a dark small tunnel-like room. In early 2010 Jade Puget said that the video was never finished.
