The video finds drummer Paul Banwatt and singer/keyboardist Dan Werb -- enmeshed in a love triangle with guest vocalist Maylee Todd. The scenes unfold as a disorienting series of still images mimicking the miscommunication between the pair.

The video was directed by Jose Laurenco, whose idea was to disassemble the visuals to create a narrative that complements the song's lyrics.
"Watching the video, you really get the sense of something being taken apart," Werb explains. "[It's] almost like each photo is 'Exhibit A' in a courtroom drama that's investigating what really happened that night."
