The video begins with a tropical landscape. The woman, who is the main character, then appears in a car alongside a male driver.

The pair spot a naked hitchhiker, which seems to alarm the driver, who then pulls out a gun and points it towards him.

The video then unravels into a giant fight scene, which results in the driver being arrested and taken away by a pleasant-looking police man.

Landrein's video is for a slower remix of Coco Banana's Earthquaker.
