The song's Grady Hall-directed music video is a rapid tour of the history of dance through the decades. In integrating the duo into clips of dance footage, they did something similar to the Mary Lambert-directed clip for Kim Carnes' "Invitation To Dance
" - a 1985 song featured in the film That's Dancing!
"When we started working on and developing ideas for the music video, we felt like we were onto something special," Simonian told Billboard
magazine. "The day of the shoot was at the Los Angeles Theatre, which was this historic, beautiful theater in L.A., and we brought 60-70 dancers that we discovered on Craigslist - [which is] how we met. So all these dancers came in, and some semi-professional, some were amateurs, some were pro - it was this really cool cultural clash happening during the video shoot, so we felt like there was something there."
The band had some help from choreographer Mandy Moore, who is best known for her work on So You Think You Can Dance
as well as delivering the moves on Silver Linings Playbook
