The band finished shooting the music video, which premiered on April 27, 2010 on MTV2 and mtvU.[3]

In the video, the band destroys an office, turning over desks and destroying computers. These scenes are inter cut with the band playing in a room with a blue backdrop. Near the end of the video, Wes kicks down one of the office walls, revealing the room with the blue backdrop behind it. At the very end of the video, Wes gives the peace sign with one hand and the middle finger with the other toward the camera.[4]
