Music video

Background

The video was directed by Tim Story and debuted on TRL April 1, 1999. The version of the video featured on 'N the Mix is adjusted to feature the US version of the song.[2] shows members of the band in an asylum. The viewer gets to see each man's torment as he remembers the girl who put him there. Each member came up with his own storyline.

Synopsis

A flashback shows Kirkpatrick ignoring his girlfriend as he talks on the cell phone, so she gets up and leaves. He sees visions of his girlfriend walking past him. Timberlake's flashback shows him trying to give a necklace to a girl, but she returns it and leaves and embraces another guy.

Chasez sees the girl who cheated on him on TV, on a show reminiscent of The Jerry Springer Show. Lance Bass reminisces to a scene where he is plucking the petals off a flower. His girlfriend sidles up to him, pulls a few petals off, but then leaves him. Joey Fatone is with his girlfriend, when another girl walks by and kisses him. His girlfriend slaps him and then leaves.

In the asylum, Fatone continually slaps himself in the face with a flyswatter. The scenes in the asylum gradually get more frenetic, with their normal expressions changing to crazed expressions, Chasez attacking the TV and being restrained, Bass ripping up flowers and Fatone running around in a Superman costume. At the end the five are released, and the girls are shown being brought to the asylum instead, as the group run past and tease them.
