The video tips its top hat to silent films, while leaning toward the morbid side with a staged funeral. But don't worry, there's nothing gruesome here. It's just a dramatic representation of the song lyrics.
Brendan sings, "Whoa Mona Lisa, you're guaranteed to run this town / Whoa Mona Lisa, I'd pay to see you frown," which makes perfect sense with the imagery. The band collaborated once again with Shane Drake on this video, who also directed Panic at the Disco's 'I Write Sins Not Tragedies' and 'Nine In The Afternoon' videos.
