Music video

In the music video, Turner is seen in a red minidress, flirting with a lawyer. She plays games with him, such as chess and Scrabble in order to get his attention. Throughout the video, Turner is seen hugging and leaning against a statue of the lawyer's leg. At one point in the video, she and the lawyer are sitting on a gigantic telephone headpiece, and she jumps up and down on one end of the phone sending the lawyer high into the air. At the end of the video, Turner and the lawyer are seen walking together holding hands.
