Music Video[]

The music video begins with Skeeter is playing a drawn red trash can as drums. Doug is dancing, singing the introduction, and seeing Skeeter is rushing with a trash can. On stage, Beebe is swinging on a hook and Doug dresses as Michael Jackson. In a colored backdrop, Doug is dancing with three multicultural people. Beebe sings, morphs into Doug alongside his dog and Skeeter. Skeeter is playing all drums and Doug is in ropes while playing a banjo. Skeeter is rolling in a drum while playing, turning upside down and Doug has a big problem. Transition to the stage's steps. Beebe sings, walks to see six backup dancers and also has a big problem. Doug and Skeeter are dressed in big white suits and Beebe became small. The spotlights flashes Doug and Skeeter on stage. The fireworks became all colored. Doug plays a banjo on stage with a fog machine. The trio is on stage and the audience are using glowsticks to wave at the trio.

These lyrics play during the credits

Doug: One, two, three, four!
Banging on a trash can.
Drumming on a streetlight.
Strumming on my banjo.
One little voice is calling me, calling me.
One little voice is calling me.
Knocking on a mailbox.
Rapping on the pavement.
Banging on a trash can.
One little voice is calling me, calling me.
One little voice is calling me.
