A music video for the song was filmed in the desert outside Los Angeles, California on July 31, 2008, directed by Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg. It was premiered on the band's official page at midnight on September 1, 2008.[5]

The video depicts two Marines riding a humvee in a desert and getting hit by an explosion. After they take cover and look for the attacker, one of them reveals that he suffered a wound. His friend tries to cover it up and call for help, and while he's eventually taken to safety via a helicopter dustoff mission, it is implied that he died of his wounds. The video then forwards to another situation involving the remaining Marine in another group riding a humvee and getting stopped in the road by a car (a Yugo) and a civilian in front of it holding a jumper cable in the air. The group, suspecting it might be an ambush, circles around the car and keeps the man at gunpoint, only to find a woman in chador in the back seat. They order her out of the car, but she approaches the protagonist, who keeps holding her at gunpoint. The video then climaxes when the Marines nervously look at each other, fearing that she might be a suicide bomber, but eventually the Marine lowers his gun and signals to the rest to do the same. The group helps the man to push start the car, and the protagonist remains looking at the sky. Scenes of the band performing in an undisclosed location in the desert are interspersed within the video.
