The song's music video was directed by Wes Edwards
and Ryan Silver and originated as a comedic spoof on the action film Point Break
. John and TJ Osborne portray pawn shop owners who are robbed at gunpoint by four masked men disguised as former presidents. The clip chronicles the consequential police chase.
"The video treatment to 'It Ain't My Fault' was written by the two directors. "The media these days is flooded with all things presidential and politics," John Osborne noted. "No matter what happens, politicians all seem to pin the blame on something else as opposed to being accountable for their own actions. We felt the connection with the song title was perfect."
TJ added, "John and I always like song titles that aren't immediately obvious but are common everyday sayings. We're all guilty of saying 'It Ain't My Fault' more so than it actually being true. When our co-writer, Lee Thomas Miller, brought up the idea we loved it. We wanted a video that was as exciting as the music."
