YUNGBLUD reveals that the video was conceptualized in part as a way to film all three musicians while on two different continents — YUNGBLUD’s scenes were shot in Greenwich, London, while Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker shot their scenes together in Downtown Los Angeles. The video depicts a zombie apocalypse as a nod to the current global pandemic the world has faced for the past year.

(00:28) YUNGBLUD: “It’s a funny story. I remember Kells called me. He literally got my number from someone and was like ‘Yo, I have a song idea, do you wanna come round to my house?’ I went to his house and I literally didn’t knock on the door, I just walked into the living room and was like ‘Have you seen the machine gun?’ I think we wrote “I Think I’m Okay” that night.”
