Music video[edit]

The official music video for "Trouble Is a Friend" shows Lenka making her way towards the screen. As the video progresses, her dresses and the backgrounds start to change in the verses. At times Lenka interacts with the newly found backgrounds and illustrations. The music video ends with the camera closing up on Lenka then fading out to a dark screen.

Another video, since pulled from YouTube, is a shadow figure production that follows a girl and her Trouble, in the form of a dragon. The video ends with the girl getting into a hot air balloon and suffering terrible fate.

The song was used in an episode from the fifth season of the popular medical drama "Grey's Anatomy".
