The video was directed by Marc Webb. It consists of the band waking up in a house, and performing usual morning rituals (yawning, eating cereal, drinking water, etc) before starting to play their instruments. The first to start is the drummer, followed by the bassist, the second guitarist, the lead guitarist, and then finally the lead vocalist (a common order in which tracks are recorded in a studio). By the last thirty or forty seconds the band has completely finished setting up their equipment in the living room and begin to play, only to finish the song.
Footage of Undergrads is shown on a television during the video, edited to look like the characters are singing the song. MTV wanted the band to include the footage because Good Charlotte also performed the show's theme song.
