  • The lighthearted music video, directed by Joseph Kahn, shows several people going through their daily routines -such as showering, cleaning, working in an office, and waitressing - intercut with Clarkson singing live. Clarkson's brother Jason makes a cameo appearance as a guy in a restroom. Kahn also directed the clips for the singer's "Behind These Hazel Eyes," "Never Again," and "Already Gone."
