Music videoEdit

The Dave Meyers directed video features Elliott on a farm, dancing under a UFO, on a stage as a beauty queen being cheered on by a crowd of Bratz dolls, in a car where one of the other passengers eats a man after he sets off the car alarm, and on the Empire State Building in a parody of King Kong. This is the second song where Elliott references Aaliyah, as her picture is on Elliott's desk in the beginning of the music video. The song also features the first verse and chorus of "Wake Up" alongside cameo appearances from former 106 & Park personality Free and Elliott's former protégé Lil' Brianna.
