The Dolls performed the song live for the first time for a "Wal-Martmarker Soundcheck" on the Wal-Martmarker website. They performed the song for the first time on television on October 15 on the Australian morning show titled Sunrise. They performed the song again for The Ellen DeGeneres Show on November 3.

Music video

According to their YouTube page, a music video was shot on September 28, 2008, also the day of Melody Thornton's birthday. The video is located in the desert. Two sneak peaks of the video were leaked onto the internet in early October, and it shows Nicole Scherzinger singing in a road on desert and the Pussycat Dolls dancing in the rain. Part of the video was filmed at White Sands National Momument in Alamogordo, NM, the same area were the movie Transformers and Transformers 2 was filmed.

The full video premiered on October 10, 2008, with it officially premiering in the United States on TRL on October 15, 2008. The video was added to the iTunes Store on October 17, 2008.

The video starts out with Nicole Scherzinger playing the piano to the beat of the song, and images of a book and flowers blowing in the wind. When the acoustics begins, there is a shot of all the girls on the road with a broken-down car. During the chorus, the girls are seen walking away from the car on the road and dancing to the beat of the background. While Scherzinger is singing in the desert alone, Jessica Sutta is shown trying to wave down a passing car with her bandanna. All the girls are then shown on top of many broken-down cars during the bridge of the song. During the second chorus, the girls are seen in sync this time with dance moves on the sand. All the girls are then shown in different elements in the desert: Scherzinger in front of the broken-down car with a wolf, Sutta in a parking lot on top of an arcade machine, Ashley Roberts walking in a parking lot with a pink stuffed elephant-doll, Melody Thornton with a flower, and Kimberly Wyatt in a broken-down pick-up truck. During the climax of the scene, Scherzinger is singing during an incoming storm at night. The girls are then shown in the same scene as before while dancing in sync, but this time, it is raining and the girls are dancing while wet. The music videos ends with an eruption of emotions from all the girls, climaxing with a clip of Ashley Roberts comforting Melody Thornton who is in sadness. The video closes with Nicole Scherzinger still playing with the beat of the background on the piano and a butterfly on her hand, before ending with a shot of the rain-soaked girls united in an embrace.
