Arkansas’s American Idol Kris Allen has a new video out for his song “Vision of Love,” and he’s asking us all one thing: “When a heart breaks and the world shakes, will we stand for the vision of love?”
In the video, Kris is busy writing a song in a loft apartment, while outside some mean dudes are bullying Tilda Swinton, and down the street a teenage girl feels like she’s not pretty and cool enough to hang out with this group of other teenage girls, who seem like they’re pretty cool.
For a minute there, during the first chorus especially, all seems lost. Everyone is all super frustrated with their situations and Kris is asking us — demanding of us — “When a tear falls, and the fear crawls, will we stand for the vision of love?”
But everything works out in the video: Kris writes an effortlessly catchy pop song about standing for the vision of love, one of the bullies has a guilty conscience and he gets the other bullies to back off of Tilda and the teenage girl figures out that she’s really beautiful after all and goes and makes friends with the cool girls.
Anyways, here’s the video:
