The video was shot backwards. "The highlight of the shoot was getting these three pairs of actors together who were all supposed to look like different versions of each other, that really surprised the actors," director Alexander Darby told Billboard

Shooting a video backwards is not an original idea. Coldplay's music clip for "The Scientist
" was also shot in reverse and the visual for Mutemath's "Typical
" features the band performing the song backwards.
