Justin told MTV News the music video captures the song's message of trying to woo back a girl. "It starts off, I really like this girl, but we didn't [get] along; we couldn't be together," he said. "Basically I want her back and [I'm] kind of going through the whole thing. I'm chasing her around, trying to get her, and she's kind of playing hard to get, but I'm persistent. I keep going."
Ludacris added that the clip is meant to be an updated version of Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel
Justin's love interest is played by R&B and pop singer Jasmine Villegas, the same girl who appears in his "Eenie Meenie
" clip. Jasmine also turned up in Kanye West's "Jesus Walks
" where she was featured helping a woman up the gate.
