In the music video, directed by Georgia Hudson (Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do
"), Pink joins a diverse cast of disillusioned young people expressing their anguish through choreographed dance routines in the streets of a desolate city. Hudson said the numbers, choreographed by the GoldenBoyz, allowed the dancers to express their real-life frustrations with the political climate. She told Promonews

"It was absolutely electric filming it. The idea was to illustrate a condensed version of the course of a relationship. This scene was a loosely guided freestyle, and each time it grew in intensity," she recalled. "We wanted to set a space and a story for them to be animalistic in, for this to be raw and unexpected, for their guts to spill, it was absolutely f---ing insane. We had a helicopter flying overhead to light them from a spotlight, this track booming like a monster against downtown LA night, gunshots (unconnected!) going off from the neighborhood, our steadicam op Bryan Freesh behaving like a hypnotized snake, a total acid energy."
