The video features Gwen Stefani and bandmate Tony Kanal dressed in traditional Native American clothes, while Adrian Young and Tom Dumont are in cowboy get-ups with guns. Dumont and Young tie up Stefani, while Kanal is behind bars.

The clip includes Stefani riding a horse and singing in a teepee, and a fire-burning dance scene with others dressed in Native American clothes.

The band says it consulted Native American friends and experts but realizes people have been offended and "sincerely apologize."
