9. In the last minute of the video, the news that DOMA and Prop 8 have been overturned flashes across the television screen.
10. As the camera pans, you see a lesbian couple watching and holding hands.
11. Band member A.J. McLeans told Good Morning America:
The concept of the video is based on the song, which tells a story of how love conquers all and ‘in a world like this’ that we live in, with all the craziness and negative energy that can go around, with real love you can overcome anything.
12. A.J. went on to say the group included the LGBT message to show their total support of marriage equality.
13. Gotta give some props to these beautiful boys in blue.
