Music video

The music video, directed by James Whitaker and produced through RSA's promo division Black Dog Films, was shot in Los Angeles on September 10, 2008. It features imagery identifiable as being shot at Half Moon Bay. [2] It premiered on Yahoo! Music on the night of October 2, 2008[3] and features Morissette in various stages on the path to emotional recovery.


The song surprisingly charted when the album was released due to downloads of the song, resulting in a position of 22 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. As of December 2008, the song had already sold 38,000 paid downloads, according to Billboard. The digital downloads also helped the song reach the lower parts of UK Singles Chart (#197) despite the single not being commercially released in the United Kingdom.
