Music video

The video, directed by Nigel Dick, begins with the group at a hotel being awoken by someone knocking on the door. The Pussycat Dolls begin to pack their belongings, then walk to their tour bus, stopping to sign autographs for fans on the way. The video continues to show footage of the girls on the bus, in dance rehearsals and practicing the song "Stickwitu". The video ends with group coming out of a back entrance of a building posing for some pictures. Throughout the video, the members of PCD are seen talking on Nokia mobile phones, presumably to their partners. As with all Pussycat doll songs, Nicole sings full lead with Melody adding minor ad-libs. Carmit sings background vocals along with the rest of the group
