Music video[edit]

The video follows the band's rise to stardom, with Andy Warhol's words, "In the Future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes", appearing at the start of the video. The band can be seen singing in a bedroom, then busking on the streets. Doing a spot at a club, a record company producer overhears them and signs them. The band is next seen in a recording studio, before a video shoot, then on a talk show with Tracy Ann Oberman, as they become the world's biggest band. This is all short lived as the bubble bursts and the video ends with the band back in the bedroom singing.
