The song exists in two versions. One is found on the explicit editions, in which lead singer Pierre Bouvier sings the word fucks in the second verse (and do you think about me when he fucks you). In the music video and for radio play, the word is omitted and sometimes replaced with touches (and do you think about me when he touches you). This is the second song in which Simple Plan uses fuck, after the demo version of "I'm Just a Kid" (changed to hell in the final studio version, though they still use fuck in live performances). The verses' chord progressions are similar to Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and Oasis' "Wonderwall".[2]

Music video

The band flew to Los Angeles to shoot the music video. It was shot on March 6. The video was directed/produced by Wayne Isham.

The video is a straightforward representation of the song. It intersperses shots of the band playing (later in the video, amid wind-blown blossoms) with shots of Pierre Bouvier's girlfriend, meeting (and having sex) with another man, while Bouvier, betrayed by the woman, waits in agony in his apartment. His apartment has a view of the man's apartment, with a clear view of a bedroom's window, where he sees them have sex.

After two weeks, the video had 1,000,000 views on YouTube.[3] It currently has over 48 million views as of November 2016.

Live performances

The song was used on the MTV show The Hills. It was performed at the closing ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
