The video for “The Boy Does Nothing” is directed by the art director from the film Moulin Rouge!, Michael Gracey. It takes place in a theatre style room, where two children are spying on the floor below. Dixon is dancing on a stage with six other girls dressed in pink. There are also couples around the room dancing along as well. Towards the end of the video, everyone starts to sing the last lines of the songs a cappella, and various male dancers try to impress Dixon with their good dancing.
