music videowas directed by Duncan Skiles. The video premiered on Operator Please's official website on October 31.
The video opens up with all band members playing their instruments in a warehouse. At the beginning of the chorus, the keyboardist, Sarah Gardiner, and the lead singer, Amandah Wilkinson, begin to fight. As Wilkinson hits Gardiner in the mouth, yellow paint pours out of her mouth. The bassist, Ashley McConnell, begins to fight Wilkinson as well during the chorus. Wilkinson wins while green paint pours out of her mouth. For the second chorus the violinist, Taylor Henderson, begins to fight Wilkinson and Henderson punches Wilkinson in the mouth and pink paint pours out of her mouth. Wilkinson then punches Henderson in the mouth and orange blood pours out. During the bridge, it shows various shots of all members getting punched except for Tim Commandeur. Commandeur then uses his crash cymbal from his drum set and uses them as Frisbees and cuts off Henderson's hand and McConnell's foot. He then chucks his drum sticks at Gardiner and they go through her
eyes. Wilkinson then rips off Commandeur's arm as blue blood pours out. Henderson then uses her remaining arm to make her violin as a bow and arrow which then stabs Wilkinson in the stomach. For the conclusion of the video, it shows all members dead on the floor.
