A music video was made for the single and was uploaded to YouTube on November 22, 2010.[1] The video is a shortened version of the short film Scenes from The Suburbs, directed by Spike Jonze and inspired by the album itself.

In February 2011, music video blog Yes, We've Got a Video! ranked the song's music video at number 7 in their top 30 videos of 2010. The video was praised as "a twisted, haunting view of the insecurities, frustrations and fear that can come with seemingly innocent suburban life."[2]
