David Cook – The Last Goodbye Music Video – Free Download from iTunes! (Adorbs)

The David Cook “Last Goodbye” music video is NOW available on iTunes as a FREE DOWNLOAD

The video is cute! REALLY cute.

  • wordnerdarchie

    LOL! Kyle (drummer in Cook’s band) takes the acting award for his fainting scene. :)

  • TurkeyIdol

    Why would this be free? Is it because the single did not sell?

  • nspiredbycook

    This video was so much fun! Absolutely loved it! Yes, Kyle’s fainting was hilarious!

  • blmetsfan

    Yay at least this is free. I’m trying to get Carrie/Brad’s new single and it’s only album only. :sigh

    By the way, I LOVE the video!

  • BigNLiddle

    LOL cute video – kind of goes with his silly personality.

  • tigervixxxen

    I like how the storyline unfolded and definitely a lot of very nice David shots. Great video, everyone should check it out!

    The video is free because it will probably be prominently featured on the main page this week, the goal is to convert album pre orders.

  • sma11ie

    I can’t stop smiling :). Love love love the video! The band looks great, David looks amazing… it was super adorable.

    Did anyone notice that super old-school cell phone the lady walking the dog had? Ha, that was weird. Speaking of old-school electronics, I see there was no Sony product placement, lol. That’s rare these days, no?

  • OmahaCookie

    Love the video, very pretty. I’ve watched – shall I say “several” times? Love Kyle at the end, love Andy’s look at the TV, love David walking up at the end “What are we looking at?”

  • Incipit

    iTunes pulled the trigger early – @11PM – and I came to see if it was here as soon as I stopped laughing! Well, got it down to a *chuckle* anyway.

    Geebus, I would pay for this stuff!! It’s short – so is the song, and Too Damn Cute. I foresee a lot of great screencaps coming – Heh.

    Flove how the pounding on Neal’s door is in sync with the drum beats – and that faint! Perfect ending.

    Now Nigel Dick’s Tweet about “dirt” on David on May 18th makes perfect sense. lol

    Wonder why they are not charging for this video?

    It’s called promotion. Lots of artists do this on Itunes for a limited time and for product placement.

  • ladymadonna

    Fantastic video. Really fun but doesn’t skimp on the pretty one bit. I love the locations and how everything was lit and shot. Really well done. Bravo Nigel Dick and team Cook.

    ETA: And then of course, there’s this: Striptease

  • brittneybabyy

    Bahahaha. That was SO adorable. xD I loved the story, and Cook looks fantastic! <3

  • weareallinnocent

    LOL Fun. More, please. :-)

  • Sydia

    I will admit…I was worried. However, this is awesome! Loved it! Well done Mr. Cook, well done! He looks incredible, and so do the boys! Too cute! I am so happy!

  • HotHotHot

    Very clever. I like it!

  • artemis

    I love this! LMAO at the crime scene tape, Dave wandering around clueless…

    The purpose of a music video is to sell the album. Offering it for free in the beginning is a great way to get people interested in the rest of the music.

  • Parkbench

    The video is so awesome! I love the end! hehe David looks soooo cute. =D

  • suenigma

    Ack! I’m Canadian and can’t download it from the US Itunes store. How can I see this? Help!

  • Pam

    Gotta admit it was fun seeing the note, the crime scene tape, and best of all Kyle fainting. That was the best part of all! Hee

    Thanks mj!

  • cookmerized

    yeah that’s nice. super nice. and thanks, ladymadonna, for that striptease. i’m a fan.

  • sma11ie

    ETA: And then of course, there’s this: Striptease

    LOL, that was nice. I objectively don’t think David has the best body, even though I heart him regardless, but I think he has a nice back, and back of arms… I didn’t watch this video of him playing Pac Man mumblety times for no reason, heh… so shallow…

  • girlygirl

    Fun video!

  • unidentified

    I love the new video! I love how David is all lost in writing the song, that he blocks out the outside world. Love the whole band is there.

    David looked really good jumping into the ocean. His shoulders look really broad with his narrow waist. Great job.

  • weareallinnocent

    LOL @ the striptease… emphasis on “tease!” Too cute. Thanks ladymadonna.

  • FridayB

    Love the video. It’s everything I hoped for. Funny, with lots of pretty plus stressing the songwriter a bit. Love it. Hope iTunes updates it’s front page soon, as I expect to see it featured there.

  • _nyanyanie

    can i view it without any itunes account? that’s why the DCO store is a gift for me… i’m one of the few who haven’t gave into itunes..

  • karenc

    Cute video, a bit of dark humor, and I love the end, when he says what are you looking at. And I love Kyle fainting.

  • Incipit

    Looks like our brunette is the Police Officer AND the reporter – and that’s a gorgeous dog – someone said an Australian Shepherd?

    IDK how long this will be a Freebie – trying to find out.

    Also love the macabre sense of humor – lightened up with Kyle – rolling his eyes back and fainting on cue – Dorks. I Flove it.

  • Eyeswideshut2

    Iz pretty. But has no wet Cook rolling in the sand. *pouts*

    But seriously …. I love it. Nice turnaround that this about songwriting, and not him angsting about the lost relationship. For me, that completely removes the dissonance that some felt between the lyrics and the uptempo music.

    And also cleverly reinforces the current branding of David as a songwriter- singer.

  • Incipit

    Nice turnaround that this about songwriting….And also cleverly reinforces the current branding of David as a songwriter- singer.

    Eyeswideshut2, it works, David is sitting there in the Motel room in his #sandyfeet all night, scribbling lyrics on pizza box lids and newspapers, and flipping cards at the ice bucket till he grabs the Hummingbird and works out the music – with the TV on mute -completely oblivious is right – in songwriting mode. Yes, Clever.

  • sunchick

    Hey, I totally guessed from the still shots and previews that he was lost in thought in the motel writing The Last Goodbye after getting some sort of inspiration on the beach. Yay me. Ten points to Gryffindor.

    Let’s see..David looks so purdy, totally dig the songwriting angle, dig that jacket he’s wearing in the opening shots (shallow aside: black v neck/leather jacket/jeans is a perfect look for him) and the loss thereof is not too shabb either. ;) The way the songtitle gets misinterpretted is pretty funny. Oh and Kyle’s eyes rolling back into his head before the faint, lulz.

  • jumpstart

    Cute! Don’t miss dark, pensive Dave at all in this vid (plenty of time for that later …LOL)

  • pattycake

    Not the concept I expected but I think its great. I did expect a bit of skin on the beach, but we got foot porn.
    Otherwise he looked very good indeed. Kyle was hilarious and any video which I get to look at Andy is also a plus.

  • springboard

    David looks great, and the story is good. I like it.

  • http://www.last.fm/user/RemusL/ RemusL

    Rats! Not available in the Canadian iTunes store. :(

  • leome

    omg, for the first half of it all I could think was how good David looked in black and then when the woman appears and I realize she thinks that was a suicide note I just started laughing till the end. How random.

    On another note, I really really like the colouring used in the video. I don’t understand a whole lot about this stuff, but I love whatever effect it was used. Pretty good. And lmao Kyle.

  • pattycake

    Okay, I viewed a few more times, cough. That man cement is good stuff, hair holds even after jumping in the ocean. Also the concept of video was Dave goes missing and his band looks for him. The band didn’t seem to excert themselves looking for him…haha

  • beingby

    Oh, this video is awesome. He’s saying “I go off and write songs, I get totally immersed, I forget everything, I write for hours …” If there’s a message for his fans, it’s that he’s been doing this for a year and a half, and sometimes a song is just a song. It’s so clever, and beautifully photographed and it’s funny. I love it!

  • offside

    Cute video! I don’t miss” Dark Dave”, either.

  • Listening

    _nyanyanie, I found I could watch the vid here
    http://the-dam-nation.blogspot.com/2011/05/music-video-last-goodbye-david-cook.html?
    you just click on the play button. I had to pause it and let it load but then it played straight through. I imagine we’ll see it popping up on Utube soon though.

    I really love this vid it was funny and David looked good what more could you ask for. :) It’s my favorite now I saw absolutely nothing wrong w/ it.

  • 123abc456

    The video was really fun to watch. It fit the song and David of course looks good. I love Kyle fainting at the end.

  • TwigLA

    LOL! I really enjoyed that. Very well done and cute concept. Of course, free is always good. Good idea to give it away to introduce the song and the album to the iTunes buying public.

  • Chicagolaw

    Oh, I like this! Very good idea to introduce it for free.

    And, Dave looks great :)

  • sma11ie

    The band didn’t seem to excert themselves looking for him…haha

    Heh… standing around outside their motel room, staring out at the sea, does that count? I have to say, I rewatched the video several times just for the band’s performances. I kinda loved seeing each of their expressions and reactions to the prospect of David’s death, lol. They all looked so sad in their own ways– Kyle seemed so beside himself, he couldn’t even look up at the TV, heh. And of course, the faint.

  • Buffynut

    OMG! Did not download this until now and I love it. It made me laugh outloud. If I didn’t already have the single, I would defintiely download it.
    On another note, that beach is 20 minutes from my house!

  • Pam

    I think I watched this vid at least 3-4 times before I shut this PC off last night. I still can’t get that image of Kyle hitting the ground like brick out of my head. Hee

  • http://wwpv.smcvt.edu VAidolFan09

    Ok I’m not a Cook fan at all but that was a damn good video!

  • butterbean

    I’m not a huge Cook fan. More like a minor fan. Loved him on the show but he so dropped off the radar to the eternal angst of his fans, which I understand.

    I was skeptical when I heard the premise of the video and wondered how it would work with the song and its lyrics. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was engaging and adorable. Congrats to Cook’s fans, I’m sure you guys are happy.

  • Trina

    Definitely his best video to date. Really super cute. I’m actually really pleased with how RCA is doing this roll-out..hopefully the song will catch on more now.

  • unidentified

    I got up this morning, turned on my computer. Then remembered new video! I love everything about it. Love the song, band, love David. Love the storyline, the scenery. It’s all just great.

  • gigglesmo3

    IDK how long this will be a Freebie – trying to find out.

    According to the new post of DCO the video is free all week

  • Sydia

    I have to agree that this is his best video. I really like the fact that he had a hand on the kid of video he wanted. I am so tired of the overly done videos of the “divas” lately that this is just a breath of fresh air.

  • progression

    Love the video! Love that it showcases Dave’s humorous side, and I think the unexpected story line will capture people’s attention much more than a literal interpretation of the song would have. Extra bonus points for the nice messaging on Dave as a songwriter and the inclusion of the band (nice work Kyle, lol!). I need to watch again for all the little details, but the first impression was “far exceeds expectations”.

  • iani

    This is funny, reminds me of movies with Peter Sellers. And indeed the story line is good to capture you and make you want to see what’s going on then to analyze the details and find the disconnections of the scenes. For example he forgets to get his notebook with the lyrics of the song he was working on, but he’s a smart guy and memorizes quickly his work.

  • tierbee

    I finally got to watch it a, erm, few times. First of all, I laughed out loud for real at the end even though I already knew Kyle would faint – it was hilarious. Very cute video, lots of pretty to look at :) – that was awesome. In fact, I think I shall have to go watch it again. Hee.

  • TreeFrog

    Gotta love it’s much more guy humor and much less chick flick!

  • chicksineggz

    Absolutely loved this.

  • lifeisgood

    I really like the video – he’s so cute:)

  • _nyanyanie

    thanks Listening!! i’m not allowed to have a creditcard… so i had troubles signing up with itunes last night… but i might give in soon, cause i haven’t pre-order a digital version of the album…..

  • spanishfan

    G-d I just love David. He is so cute and the guys are so sweet. Such a fabulous close knit unit. The video is amazing. The best yet. Typical Cook humor.

    Gracias Marcia.

  • Incipit

    Thanks much, gigglesmo3 , that wasn’t up last night – and I forgot where I read the timeframe earlier.

    Must have watched it X amount of times, still noticing details – Love the songwriter branding, and the beautiful SoCal light (or the blue filter) but David – Champagne and Pizza? Okay then. *snerk*

  • tinawina

    Very cute video. Do we know when it will hit Vh1?

  • PomWellington

    Finally got to view this vid (through the kindness of strangers, so thank you!) after angsting all night – could not download it up here in Canuckville..but it was so worth waiting for! I was trying to figure out exactly what was different about him and I guess its that for the first time in yrs (well since the CBTM vid) we can actually see him singing without his gorgeous mouth being attached to that infernal mike! There is so much Cookie eye-candy goodness in this video that I just bought into the whole story line, yeah, despite the complete implausibility of it, how shallow of me! – It was just a tasty little treat for the eyes and ears. :)

  • BootStar

    I’ll confess I forgot all about it until I got an email reminder this morning. Still not crazy about the song, but the video is sweet, even if it’s a little too eerily reminiscent of Jeff Buckley’s sad demise (and his song of the same name!). But the ending of the video is just LOL funny. Kyle is hilarious. Great job.

  • sma11ie

    but David – Champagne and Pizza? Okay then. *snerk*

    That was champagne in the bucket? I thought it was beer…? I loved the flicking of the card into the bucket, btw. I bet he really does stuff like that in writing sessions.

  • Sassycatz

    and I guess its that for the first time in yrs (well since the CBTM vid) we can actually see him singing without his gorgeous mouth being attached to that infernal mike!

    Take note, Scotty.

  • Incipit

    That was champagne in the bucket? I thought it was beer…?

    Eh, Sma11ie, you may be right – an eagle eyed person elsewhere says O’Douls – in which case – I’d rather the champagne! Heh.

    The screencaps for this video are gonna be cool.

  • fadetowhite

    I like!

  • standtotheright

    The thing that I like about it is that it is simultaneously broad and slapsticky (and, y’know, maybe a little loose on the continuity) and touched with really subtle editing and design choices.

    And Peek fainting will never not be funny.

  • canadiandcfan

  • luvmy5guys

    I love Adam to death and adore James.. but for me no one will ever equal David C… Just watching the video reminds me why he had me at “Hello”.. love the vid.. very David… very funny :-)

  • kathrynTX

    Oh I LOL’d! Not what I expected. But I love it! I intentionally didn’t read many comments cause I couldn’t watch & download til I got home tonight. BWHAHAHAHAHA! Get to see the photogenic, beautiful Mr. Cook plenty AND the Boys in the Band a bit. Love them all. Lots of fun, some serious moments & looks, and the singing of course. Just great. Thank you, David Cook. What a lovely break in my day(s)…you make or break my day…oh got sidetracked. He’s too much. I did NOT expect the funniness. A WTFCook video. Yeah.
