Music video BackgroundEdit
The music video for the song features scenes switching between the band playing in what appears to be a basement with "Box Car Racer" written in graffiti on the wall, along with the track titles of all the songs on the self titled cd, and a young girl crying in her bedroom. The video achieved some airplay on MTV, and massive success on MTV2, MuchMusic and Fuse TV. The video was directed by both singer Tom DeLonge and Nathan "Karma" Cox. The video was later released on the Box Car Racer DVD. The album version of the song is a minute longer than the version used in the music video, due to a shortened intro.
