The music video seems to have been done in the style of Will Vinton's Dinosaurs. - A Fun-Filled Trip Back in Time. The video parodies scenes from, as well as the general plot of the 1993 movie, and contains a myriad of sight-gags-as is usual for Yankovic's videos-such as a claymation version of Steven Spielberg running from dinosaurs, Barney having his head ripped off, and a Velociraptor attempting to break down a door, only to realize it has a key. The video was directed by Mark Osborne and Scott Nordlund.
