You had a bad trope, the TV don't lie:
- Lyrical Dissonance: "Bad Day" is about the singer recalling all the bad days they've had, but the song is upbeat and happy.
- Missed Him by That Much: In the video for "Bad Day", at first the guy and woman don't see each other but then at the end they do.
- Stepford Smiler: In "Bad Day""You're faking a smile with the coffee to-go."
- Umbrella of Togetherness: In the video for "Bad Day" the man puts the girl under his umbrella when they board a taxi cab back home, finally meeting each other for the first time.
