The song's split-screen music video was filmed in Los Angeles and New York. It features Darren Criss (Glee
) and Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl
) portraying a couple who are trying to make their long-distance relationship work.
Criss came to the project after Glee
covered A Great Big World's "This Is The New Year
" in January 2013. "We kind of just trusted him -- we definitely thought that he'd be able to bring something interesting to the role, and we loved Jessica's work as well, so it all came together really fast," the visual's director Isaac Rentz told The Hollywood Reporter
. "In fact, we cast them like two days before we actually shot the video, which was really quick and kind of a testament to how awesome Darren and Jessica are."
