Music video

The video has been directed by Douglas Hart.[2] The video was premiered on Channel 4 on Saturday August 18, 2007 12:12 am.

The entire video has a monochrome look and was shot on colour stock, Super 8 and high contrast black and white 35mm film. The video mainly features a miming Doherty pacing purposely down the middle of a deserted city street, dark suited and fedora hatted.

The pace of the video speeds up, with rhythmic freeze frames and zooms, as it cuts between Doherty and McConnell, Whitnall and Ficek – who are seen driving a Jaguar. The video also features Doherty playing around with his hair in front of a mirror. One of Doherty's kittens gets a look in at one point during the video and a quick glimpse of Doherty's new "Astile" tattoo is seen. The video culminates with all the band members taking an upbeat night-time city tour from their Jaguar car.
