Music video

On September 26, 2006 AFI appeared on Total Request Live to premiere the music video. It peaked at #1 shortly afterward, then retired at #7, spending 40 days on the countdown, making it the shortest living music video on the countdown.

The band appears in a snowy forest and they die one by one, leaving Havok as the only remaining member. Havok chases after a mysterious woman played by Christina Petrovic, who reveals herself as evil. After Havok collapses through the ice and attempts to rescue himself, she appears behind him and the two share a kiss. Havok dies and is shown sinking into the water at the end of the music video, with the mysterious woman.

The video (directed by Marc Webb) was said to be inspired by Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill duology and Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow.[2]

On November 15, 2006, a long version was released on Yahoo!. The video contains additional footage at the beginning of the music video and features the outro to the preceding track on Decemberunderground, "The Interview". It features the band members roaming around the snowy forest, as well as the mysterious woman. It features five quick flashes as well, the first four containing frames from videos AFI made during their "5 Flowers" mystery that ended with fans receiving secret passes to shows in April 2006. The fifth frame features the word 'ÞrírÞrírSjö' over the cover of "The Leaving Song Pt. II" 7" from their previous studio album Sing the Sorrow. The word is Icelandic for "three three seven". On November 17, 2006, the extended version was removed from Yahoo!. However, it was eventually re-released on the site and became viewable on YouTube. It is available for digital download on iTunes as well.
