Discussing the video, Angela Gail and Jeffrey Jacob, stated, “For the video we just wanted to go to a great place. We love Mexico and we hadn't spent much time in Mexico City, so we decided to do it there. We brought some giant inflatable elephants and drove in a van. We turned on the camera in the places we liked. The police drove us away from some places, but most of them were all curious. It was quite magical. We are thrilled to be able to return to Mexico City, to perform at one of the best festivals in the world.”
