Music blog POP! Goes the Charts described the song as “surprisingly cheerful”, noting its full arrangement and descriptive lyrics, and concluding that it would be a “huge seller”.
A music video to accompany the release of “It’s a Beautiful Day” was first released onto YouTube on March 25, 2013 at a total length of three minutes and fifty-one seconds.
The video shows Bublé arriving at a home to find his on-screen girlfriend, played by Jaime Pressly, enjoying a kiss with Jesse Heiman. As he enters the house and sees them kissing, he asks: “What’s going on?”. His girlfriend quickly responds, “have you met my yoga instructor?”, while Jesse, puts his hands together and says “Namaste”. Looking bemused, Bublé shakes his head saying “It’s awesome, it’s all good, it’s all good” before walking out the house. He walks out into the street where he passes a number of women doing various things, some of whom stop and look back at him. As the chorus kicks in he’s joined by women in ring master costumes who do a routine with him, while confetti falls around them. The video also features an animated bird which lands on his hand, a rainbow and a unicorn shaped cloud. The video continues with Bublé sitting in kissing booth, with a long line of women waiting to share a kiss with him before he passes a woman who is paddling her feet in a large martini glass, as a paper Chinese Dragon weaves around him. Finally he finds himself back at his house where his girlfriend is leaning out the window. As he sings to her she falls out but an unconcerned Bublé just shrugs and walks on. As he hits the road once again, walking toward the viewer, the video ends rather dramatically with explosions and fire erupting behind him.
