FADE IN:

Using A Camera Lens That Makes Nickelback’s Heads Look A Lot Bigger Than Their Bodies (like looking through a peephole—bodies/instruments/stage—all compacted together) the band jumps right into PERFORMING the song.

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

No, I don’t guess
I don’t sacrifice
And I know
I don’t realize
Just how much
I can idolize…and I know and I know

MATCH CUT TO:

Jimmy Neutron-Style Animation, (still with big heads) they run through city streets (City Life And The Actual Street Below Their Feet Whizzing By Them) performing. (Chad in front, Mike and Ryan with their guitars, flanking him, and other Ryan on drums, He’s the only one who’s actually not running, but still following)

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

And then I find it falls back on
On to me, to see, believe
And down onto you, We do, it’s true
And I won’t beg to stay, to leave, or to believe
A word you say, and then I guess

MATCH CUT:

Nickelback Now In A Classic Mario Brothers-Like Video Game, running and jumping as they keep performing. (Again, and ALWAYS with OVERSIZED heads. Chad’s head pulsates even larger as he sings his lines)

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

It all falls back on you
To find out (find out)
What’s the deal
And I guess you don’t
Simplify
It’s just you had to
Had to take, and I know and I know

They jump up to score some mid-air rings along the way…

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

And then I guess it all falls back on you

And continue on…

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

There’s a fine line between right and wrong
And I know we knew all along
Just how much I can half belong…and I know and I know

MATCH CUT:

Jimmy Neutron-Style Animation as before…

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

And then I find it falls back on
On to me, to see, believe
And down onto you, We do, it’s true
And I won’t beg to stay, to leave, or to believe
A word you say, and then I guess

MATCH CUT BACK TO:

Trekking and jumping through Mario-World like video game…

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

It all falls back on you
To find out (find out)
What’s the deal
And I guess you don’t
Simplify
It’s just, you had to
Had to take, and I know and I know

Then I find it all falls back on you

MATCH CUT BACK TO:

The Funky Camera Lens That Distorts Nickelback As They Perform.

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

Cause I’m really up on this

Cause I’m really up on this

Cause I’ve seen it before

Where the hell did I get through you

No, I don’t guess
I don’t sacrifice
And I know
I don’t realize
Just how much
I can idolize…and I know and I know

No, I don’t guess
I don’t sacrifice
And I know
I don’t realize
Just how much
I can idolize…and I know and I know

Cause I’m really up on this

Cause I’ve seen it before

Where the hell did I get through you

MATCH CUT BACK TO:

Jimmy Neutron-Style World…

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

No, I don’t guess
I don’t sacrifice
And I know
I don’t realize
Just how much
I can idolize…and I know and I know

MATCH CUT BACK TO:

Video Game…

We Wrap It All Up By Doing Multiple Rapid Crosscuts Between All Three Worlds…

LYRICS

(Chad Singing)

It all falls back on you
To find out (find out)
What’s the deal
And I guess you don’t
Simplify
It’s just, you had to
Had to take, and I know and I know

Then I guess it all falls back on you

On you

On you

On you

Ending on the four as bobblehead toys on a car dashboard.
