The music video features band member Valerie Day walking on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and entering a ballet studio, meeting up with her husband John Smith and opening a closet full of sneakers and dancing shoes animated with stop motion (including pixilation). Valerie and John start dancing themselves as well. The shoes also form the flags of United States, UK, France, and Canada. The video ends with Valerie and John walking in stop motion and pixilation with the shoes. The video was directed by Wayne Isham.
