The song's music video features the band performing in a retirement home's cafeteria. As the song progresses, lead vocalist Jimmy Pop leaves the stage and performs numerous spontaneous actions in front of a group of unresponsive senior citizens, including dancing suggestively on tables and making awkward facial gestures. The video culminates when the elderly notice the band, and are rejuvenated by their performance. With the retirement home now filled with a rock concert-like atmosphere, the band exits the stage with several senior citizens. The final shot of the video reveals that the retirement home was specially designated for the deaf.
The video is introduced by "Pat Minfield" (portrayed by Pop), a parody of Matt Pinfield, the host of MTV's music video show 120 Minutes (which is presented in the video as 120 Midgets).
