Music video

The video is set on a tropical island somewhere and features three young women and Ultrabeat. The three women are shown running down a beach and as they get close to the camera the video switches to Mike Di Scala who is singing. The video then shows Ultrabeat at a table eating and looking at photos of the girls. The video then goes in on a particular photograph and shows the girls on a beach and switches between the girls and Mike Di Scala singing.

Then the girls drive past Ultrabeat in a silver convertible. Ultrabeat get in a small 4x4 and follow them. The video shows the girls on the beach and Mike Di Scala singing for the last time before showing the girls walking into a bar, and dancing next to Ultrabeat.

The video makes use of close-ups when looking at Di Scala's sunglasses and the photographs to switch scenes. It also flips between scenes of the girls and Di Scala or Ultrabeat showing them during the day before they get together at the end.
