Music video

The official music video for "Mercy" debuted in the UK on August 15, 2008, on the music channel Q. Director Christopher Sims used a variety of unique film techniques to give the video the look of old Kodalith photography, where images are high contrast but have a soft vintage look. [] The video features OneRepublic performing the song on a deserted beach at nightfall amid windy, chaotic weather. In the video, a young boy dressed as a soldier, portrayed by Jett Patrick, is seen marching while carrying large flags and placing them on the beach in a circle around the band as they perform. [] The flags feature the image of the tree logo that appears on the cover of the "Dreaming Out Loud" album.

An original music video for "Mercy" was filmed while the band was signed to Columbia Records. Although the video was never officially released, it has been viewable on YouTube since July 2007, and features OneRepublic performing the song in an abandoned warehouse type setting.
