Throughout the video the focus is on the band performing, as well as interactions with the crowd, and the response from New York as the band traveled through the city. The screen is split throughout the video so often you can see different scenes at once. The video footage flips back and forth from colour to black and white, to colour scenes with a colour wash placed over them. (i.e. a yellow tint)

The video premiered on the ABC television network on the night of January 4, 2005. The video was aired as part of the half-time coverage of the FedEx Orange Bowl BCS National Championship game featuring USC against Oklahoma. During the broadcast a 2 minute version of the video aired, and the entire video was available to view on ESPN.com at the conclusion of the halftime. The song was also used for a highlights clip showing on ESPN on SportsCenter.
