  • In an interview with the Lab Out Loud Podcast, Linnell mentions that a video was created (by Pascal Campion) for the song. In the video, a child performs a cannonball into a swimming pool. Disney was unhappy with the video, because the child was not wearing water wings. After toying with making lyrical changes to the song, the band eventually decided to drop it from the main release.
