The video was directed by Chris Applebaum, who also did Semisonic's "Closing Time
" video. We see the band wearing T-shirts with different times on them, changing from scene to scene. Those numbers are the song lengths on the Feeling Strangely Fine
album. Dan Wilson told us: "The whole idea of the song is about giving someone a compilation cassette. Every song you put on a compilation cassette has a length of minutes and seconds, so those T-shirts were all just references to the obsessive music lover who might even know the lengths of the songs."
