Music Videos

First version

Despite not having a physical single release, a video was filmed for the song. The video itself is quite low budget compared with her previous video for Be Mine!, and compared with the later UK video. It first shows Robyn with a group of people inside a club, wearing a series of dresses and sneakers. Later scenes show her walking outside at night with the same group, and in a red dress bicycling.

Second version

A different music video for the UK was released on October 9, 2007. The video has been a success getting over 170,000 views on YouTube in less than a day. The video has been praised by its viewers for its uniqueness and creativity. It is also one of the most commented on videos on YouTube, due to many viewers; incorrect assumption that Robyn is a man. The video features various solo shots of Robyn in cubes dancing, occasionally shown in silhouette or with various props such as a chair, lifejackets or other, smaller boxes. Several shots show only her head encased in a box.
