"Maybe California" is one of the visualettes which are very inspired by the lyrics of the song. We follow Tori in California, first driving and walking through the streets dressed in red, then heading to Malibu to walk on the beach juste before the sunset, standing at the pick of a cliff and gazing at the ocean.

The song tells the tragedy of a desperate mother on the verge of attempting suicide by jumping off a cliff. Tori convinces her not to jump and rather suggests her to remain hopeful and maybe go to California to heal. The black dress Tori wears on the beach is draped in a very Grecian fashion, clearly echoing theatrical tragedy. At the end of the video, Tori goes to the pick of the cliff and gaze a moment down but do not jump. The shots of the beautiful sky with birds and her pose, arms stretched gracefully toward the sky seem to imply she has found solace and inner strenght.

This video can be found on The Road Chronicles DVD of Abnormally Attracted to Sin’s collector edition.
