The video features various male and female models (including Ana Cristina Oliveira) walking and dancing up and down a catwalk wearing sexy and outrageous outfits. It also features Adams in a bathroom sitting on the toilet with his guitar and standing in front of the mirror trying to do his hair. A shot from recording sessions is used as the cover of Adams' 18 til I Die album cover. The music video is shown in 1997 film Red Corner starring Richard Gere.

Video was directed by Matthew Rolston, who also directed Adams' other music video of his popular song "Let's Make a Night to Remember". Music video was nominated for MTV Video Music Award for "Best Male Video". In his interview to Songfacts, Adams stated that it's probably his own favorite video.[1]
