The teaser video for Mr. Taxi was released on April 22, 2011, and the music video was released on April 28, 2011, the dance version was released three days prior on April 25, 2012. The choreography for Mr. Taxi was handled by long-time collaborator Rino Nakasone, with Sim Jaewon.
The video begins with the girls dressed in yellow taxi driver outfits in front of a screen that flashes words and patterns in blue lighting. At the beginning of the second verse, it changes to the girls being dressed in black outfits (with differently colored piping for each girl), and dancing in front of a multicolored map of the world. Near the end of the second verse, and throughout the rest of the video, the video alternates between shots of the girls in their yellow outfits and their black outfits. After the second chorus, Sooyoung sings a rap bridge line "One, two, three, here we go! Oh!," which is followed by a dance break performed by Hyoyeon. The bridge continues with vocals by Yuri, Sunny, Sooyoung, Jessica, Tiffany and Taeyeon, after which there are more alternating shots between the two scenes (yellow and black outfits) for the final chorus, ending with the girls freezing in position in their yellow uniforms as the light fades out.
The music video was nominated for Video of the Year at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Japan but was lost to EXILE's Rising Sun.
A music video of the Korean version was released to accompany the single's release made entirely from the group's performance of the song on their 2011 Girls' Generation Asia Tour, with a dance rehearsal for the song leaking in March 2012. As of July 5, 2015 the music video has reached 103,000,000.
