Sam, who also directed the promo for the latest Bootstraps single, "Whenever You're Around", asked his former TV wife if she'd feature in the project with him - and she jumped at the chance.
"Working with Erika on 'Parenthood' was one of the best experiences I've had as an actor, and this video felt like the perfect chance to reunite," he tells JustJared.com. "Not only was Bootstraps' music originally featured on Parenthood, but the song has such a nostalgic feel to it."
"We thought it was a great way to pay homage to that show and to say thanks to the fans who've kept it alive."
Sam also recruited his "Why Women Kill" co-star Alexandra Daddario to make an appearance in the video.
