You'll find the vid on YouTube.
Big mistake from SoH making that vid, by the way. To roughly quote David Knopfler from "The Bluffer's Guide to Music": "You know the video's finished when the end result looks vaguely derivative, and everyone in it looks awkward and out-of-place." This vid has the lot: cheesy blue-screen overlays of the lads playing against backdrops of pounding waves, those 70s colour-shift effects that Top of the Pops used to love, etc, etc.. Hell, they could just have filmed a single performance and used that, and the result would have been great. But no, they had to try for a pop video. Whoops.
