The dancer is a woman that has black tied up hair with purple highlights. She wears a loose purple transparent tunic with gold necklaces, a black bra and a black pair of shorts underneath, orange and black knee high socks, with green and white platform heels.
P1 is a woman. She has dark brown braided hair and a pair of blue glasses. She has a blue t-shirt and a long yellow skirt. She also has a pair of blue dollshoes.
P2 is a man. He has dark brown hair. He is wearing a yellow jacket over a red t-shirt. He has a yellow bracelet on his left wrist, and he is wearing a pair of black pants. He is also wearing a pair of cyan shoes.
The background is at first seen inside an animated waiting room, complete with a red and black chair, a purple brick wall, and a red door. Going outside the nearby window, there is a large city similar to that of Uptown Funk's. The buildings greatly vary in color and the floor has colorful flowing loops. The coach makes various painted effects with some dance moves. A couple of sketched cars are drawn out, slowly driving on a pink and orange striped road.
In the chorus, the coach is on a road that is shown horizontally. As long as the coach dances, many sketches create and color by themselves appear: they show many skyscrapers, stars, and lipsticks.
During Sean Paul’s lines, there are drawings of buildings coming to life and being colored afterward; there are also yellow stars floating around along with lipstick and some lips.
In the end, all buildings disappear and are replaced by a sky made of colorful animations. The floor is animated with waves made of lines in shaded of blue, purple, and lime green.
The background is a Bollywood market with a big door behind the dancers. There are sacks of food on the left and on the right, you will see a bike. The background is full of symbols. At the chorus, the background will turn to nighttime and a lot of buildings will be shown and the words "i love cheap thrills" will be shown everytime it is sung.

Gold Moves 1, 2, and 3: Rapidly raise your arms up and your left leg once, in an Indian-styled motion. Gold Move 4: As if romantically dancing, slowly raise your right arm up while keeping the left to your hip, holding the other person's arm if applicable.
In the E3 menu, the menu color was cyan instead of violet, and the menu banner was mainly yellow instead of white.
In the E3 preview and in some promotional images, the pictograms were in lighter colors. This was changed due to the background being mostly white.
The Beta pictograms are also seen in the Just Dance Now preview.
In earlier versions of the game, the menu icon portrayed P2 with visible mustaches, which actually appear on his face but are flesh-colored. The same flesh tone is used in the final version of the icon.
The background contains the words "i love cheap thrills", but the "i" is not capitalized.
The coaches are slightly off-centered to the right for the majority of the routine.
