Music video[edit]

The music video became available to view exclusively on the VidZone application for PlayStation 3 on 4 August 2009; it was posted on the official website and YouTube channel on 5 August. It was filmed onto VHS rather than digital recording equipment to obtain an old school 90s look. It starts with shots of The Prodigy in a derelict building (according to The Prodigy it is an abandoned mental hospital), followed by dancing and walking towards an ambulance. After climbing inside the ambulance they continue singing while trashing it from the inside. After exiting they watch a group of people, who are dressed in black and wearing bear masks, spray paint and further vandalise the vehicle. The video ends with additional clips of the band dancing and singing the lyrics, closing with the camera moving away from the now unrecognisable ambulance.
