The music video for the song shows Chipmunk at school with his friends, and one boy (John Farnworth) is performing keepie-uppie with a football. It also shows Chip counting A-grades from his GCSE results. It features Tim Westwood, Dino Contostavlos (Dappy from N-Dubz), Wretch 32 and Griminal as well as other British artists. The video also features actor Adam Deacon and artists JME, Griminal, Double S, Bashy and DJ Ironik as schoolchildren.

DJ Ill appears at the end of the video, as the school janitor. The music video was filmed at Gladesmore Community School (which Chip attended as a pupil) and features some of the Gladesmore Class of 2010 pupils. One of the members of the dance group Flawless is also featured in the video. The video was filmed by Ben & Vertex.
