The video was shot in the Swakopmund Desert in Namibia. Most of the video features shirtless 2-D and an animated version of the San Fernando Valley Youth Chorus stranded in the middle of a desert, following what appears to have been a helicopter crash. The survivors keep themselves entertained with the song while awaiting the arrival of rescuers, portrayed by Noodle and Murdoc crewing a Windhoeker Maschinenfabrik Wer'wolf MKII mine-proof vehicle driven by Russel (who wears a Fu Manchu). The song and video feature a guest appearance by Pharcyde rapper Bootie Brown, who leaps out of a sand dune in World War II military fatigues to perform his verse of the song. In the end of the video, Gorillaz, the children and Bootie Brown depart the crash site in the military vehicle, which breaks down meters away.
