Music Video

In the music video, Gwen Stefani and Eve are arrested for disrupting a formal party with their loud music and rowdiness. An older woman appears in the video: the woman shares a strong resemblance to Leona Helmsley. She tells police officers about the disturbance as Gwen and Eve disrupt the party. Dr. Dre has also an appearance at the end of the video when he comes to jail and pays the bail for Eve & Gwen. Fellow Ruff Ryders Jadakiss and Styles P make a brief cameo in a scene where Eve acts as a bartender; DMX appears at the end as one of police officers.

Sales

The song was one of the biggest selling between May/June 2002 in the United Kingdom.

The song was played in the sitcom Friends when Monica attempts to strip for Chandler but ends up admitting the clothes and shoes she's wearing are extremely tight. The song was actually the original version, in which the swearing is audible.
