Music Video Info:

The music video for "Just Can't Get Enough" was directed by Ben Mor.[12] It was shot over a three-day period in Tokyo, Japan while the group was on a press tour.[13] The video was shot just one week before the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.[12] In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Fergie spoke of the clip and the natural disaster in Japan, saying, "It was the easiest video I ever shot because it was us living our lives. I love that it's showing a true perspective of how it can sometimes be lonely on the road away from our loved ones. It also demonstrates the love and connection we have with Japan. Our heart goes out to all of the Japanese people who have been affected by this natural disaster."[13] Taboo was also quoted saying "It was an amazing moment in time because Japan has always been my favorite place on the planet. It was great to do our video there. God bless the Japanese. Our love goes out to them."[13]

The video premiered on March 16, 2011 on music video website Vevo.[14] It opens with the caption "This video was filmed in Japan one week before the earthquake and tsunami. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Japan. We love you."[15] It was shot in a guerilla-style.[16] Fergie is seen in a hotel room and will.i.am is in the back of a car. Taboo sings his verse while walking in the city and apl.de.ap sings his "switched up" verse in front of a futuristic backdrop with flashing lights. It also includes vignettes of Tokyo's nightlife, such as young club-goers taking photos with mobile phones and the city's rail system.[15] The clip closes with a message to encourage viewers to donate to the Red Cross.[17]

The video received positive reviews from critics. Bill Lamb of About.com wrote that "The feel ... was already a bit melancholy depicting the loneliness and separation of being on the road. However, the fact that the clip was filmed in Tokyo, Japan just a week before the recent devastating earthquake gives the video even more depth and poignance."[18] Becky Bain of Idolator wrote that "It's basically Lost In Translation with a more thumping soundtrack."[19]
