Video and plot

The video, directed by Pedro Romhanyi, starts off with Thomas singing as he walks along the streets of New York City. Then suddenly, he sees someone and runs away, chased by that person through the New York streets. Later on, Thomas escapes from the chaser and sings a few lines while walking along another part of the street. Just as he finishes his lines, the chaser catches up to Thomas again. Eventually, Thomas loses the chaser and goes into an elevator in a building. Once he leaves, he walks along the top floors and then sees the chaser, chasing him again. As the chase continues Thomas tries to climb down a fire escape only to fall into trash. Then Thomas runs on top of some parked cars only to run into a fence which he can't climb. Then Thomas gets cornered and finds himself face to face with the chaser. As the video ends we get a quick glimpse of the chaser's face and it is in fact himself, Rob Thomas.
