Music video[edit]

The music video was released on the band's MySpace page on February 28. The band announced that the video was shot near Toronto, Ontario. It starts off with Deryck Whibley playing an acoustic guitar as shots show around the house he is playing in. There are many shots of pictures and people (including one of the Shriners). Each of these people has different uses for pictures and photos (e.g. the old man uses his pictures to remember his old days in the army and the young couple use them to take photos of themselves together). There is then shots of Deryck, Cone, and Steve Jocz playing in a room where they play the chorus of the song; they then use this room to play the rest of the song in. We then learn more about the people and why their pictures are so important to them. More is revealed about them as the second verse goes on. Then, just before the second chorus, a framed picture with a moving image of Deryck walking is shown. As Deryck walks, the environment behind him changes rapidly showing many different places. After this, the song goes back to being acoustic for 8 bars. During this, Deryck is shown playing his acoustic guitar again. Also, the people in the house begin to freeze frame and turn into framed pictures of themselves. The song then continues and ends. The video shows the many aspects of the song.
