Two music videos were made. The first, directed by French filmmaker Michel Gondry, is a Christmas story that casts Kanye as a homeless man with three children who find refuge at a Macy's department store, where toys and other items come alive at night. Adam Levine plays the store's security guard.
The second video is a black-and-white animation by Bill Plympton, although the video occasionally cuts to scenes of Kanye and Adam Levine. The animated video depicts Kanye West as a taxi driver as he picks up a young boy and his mother. When they stop at a gas station, the young boy picks up one of his mother's cigarettes and lights it. The video then cuts to the outside of the car, where the car is being filled with gas. There is a small puddle of gas on the ground and the cigarette is seen thrown out of the window. The boy's mother screams as the car, in which Kanye and the boy are in, blasts into the sky. They exit out of the car in midair, and appear to be flying. Kanye and the boy then both grow angel-like wings. The boy grabs hold of Kanye's hand and they fly off into the distance, followed by the car which appears to use its doors as wings. The video the cuts to the car falling to the ground as the boy waves to it, Kanye is in the car and drives off.
