Directed by Akiva Schaffer, the video opens with Andy Samberg, who is sitting at the kitchen table with band-mates Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone pouring cereal into a bowl. To his delight, a coupon for a free boat ride for three falls out of the box. After pondering who will go with him, Samberg picks Schaffer but skips over Taccone in favor of the previously unseen R&B singer T-Pain, who has apparently been sitting at the table, off camera, the entire time. The three men are next seen atop the yacht Never Say Never in Biscayne Bay, Florida, dressed in tuxedos as Samberg announces that the boat is preparing to launch.
