  • The Colin Tilley directed music video was filmed on May 29, 2012. "It looks very surreal from a whole other planet," Tilley revealed in a behind-the-scenes clip. "It kinda feels like Minority Report. It's just got a really crazy vibe and [Guetta's] controlling everything that's happening in his world. He's controlling these dancers that are going crazy, he's controlling Chris Brown in this room with this mask on."
