Michel Gondry directed the video. He has quite an imagination, and for this song, he had different characters representing different sounds in the song all moving around a circle.
Among the characters are four disco girls moving up and down a set of stairs, symbolizing the ascending/descending bass guitar. Gondry recalled to NME
: "Chic always makes me dance. When I did the video for 'Around The World' I built the stairs for the dancers because every time I hear the bassline from 'Good Times
' I picture a little guy going up and down the stairs."
