Music video[edit]

"Dance Booth" version[edit]

The first music video for the song is known as the "Dance Booth" version or "The Orange" version. It was directed by Brian L. Perkins and depicts the band and many fans in front of an orange backdrop. It was shot during their 2002 summer tour with The Vines.

"Black and White" version[edit]

A second video was made to promote the single in 2003 in the UK. This video was directed by Barnaby Roper[1] in 2003 and features the band performing the song in an empty white room with a line of female dancers who feature prominently. The video is in monochrome save for random stripes in the background which are in either pink or orange.
