Two guys are "discussing" with a couple of girls on the sidewalk when suddenly an irritatingly elongated Limousine pulls up, pushing the boys away. Inside the Limo is Richard D. James with a heavily caricatured face. The girls get in and immediately their faces transform into male faces. Everyone goes wild, dancing and partying. Location changes to the beach.

Chris Cunningham said about the video being criticized as being racist: "It's not racist! It is sexist, but it's a piss-take of R&B videos which are all sexist. You can't take a piss without exaggerating."
