The video, directed by Dean Karr,[4] begins with a clip of a cage falling into the sea, blood seeping out of it into the surrounding waters. It then moves to footage of the band playing on a set of floating anti-shark cages. Eventually, a shark appears and is seen to be eating a piece of meat, presumably the contents of the cage. At the end of the video, Moreno falls into the water and the video fades out.

On the B-Sides & Rarities DVD, there is an interview with Moreno that takes place during the filming of the video.
