The film clip for the song forms the first part of a 2-part story (with the second part being the clip for "Beau Geste", released before this clip) set in the 1920s. In this clip the band members feature as four ruffians in Marseilles, each getting into trouble and being chased across the city, eventually hiding in the Foreign Legion recruitment office. It ends with the four finding themselves in Morocco and in the Legion, leading into the "Beau Geste" clip. The video is subtitled in French, and was shot in Melbourne. You Am I fan Peter Helliar has a small cameo as a man whose baguette is stolen from him.
