The music video starts off with Ben, Ian, Aaron, and John in a military conference room, after their Commanding Officer dismisses them, the band each heads toward their separate fighter planes, the song begins after the "Pig Man" squeals, when the band reaches the Pig City inhabited only by hipsters. The band starts to destroy the Pig Man's army of flying sharks, the Pig Man gets into a giant flying snake, when the guitar solo starts, the back of Ian's fighter jet gets bit off by a flying shark, causing him to crash. When the guitar solo finishes, Aaron starts to shoot at a flying shark with an MP5, Aaron's target flies behind John, causing Aaron to shoot John's plane multiple times, John crashes into the side of a building, Aaron's plane immediately gets destroyed by a flying shark. Ben, the last man standing, is left to fight the Pig Man one-on-one, after a small firefight, Ben's ultimate fate is a kamikaze into the flying snake.
