The face that launched a thousand … downloads

David Archuleta’s “I’ll Never Go” video premieres Sunday, 8 p.m. Manila time (8 a.m. ET). Here’s the teaser vid, along with two behind-the-scenes photos from the lovely @kariontour. (@ohmyjoshashley suggests doing THIS with his suitcase 🙂 )

P.S. I admit I’m kind of chuckling to myself that we are so excited to see this video premiere on Sunday, even though we know it will basically be David walking around that room, packing up and staring longingly into the camera.

It’s not as though there will be this twist ending where Anya runs into the room, screams “DON’T GO, JOSH!!!!!” and plants a big wet kiss on him … *fade to black* … sorry, should I have said “spoiler alert”? 😉

    I want to put you in charge of this video TOfan….because I already know that I would love your ending way better than the one we all know that’s going to happen!! I’ll take anything David-related right now and I know these videos were a last minute thing and filmed all in the same day but I sure hope when he gets back from his mission that the videos pick it up a bit…..kiss a freaking girl already!! All right, I know that’s probably not going to happen but at least have a girl in the video and hold a hand or something 🙂

    Lol – doesn’t take much, does it.
    Think the v-neck is as much of a twist as we’re gonna get (wfm).
    Maybe a twist could be that it keeps getting a little lower haha!

    (keep it up bubblegirl)

    Awww, look at that face! You know if that kid followed you home, you would beg to keep him.

      Obviously the poster above is using the feminine form of my weird-but-here-to-stay fan name. I’m not sure how that happened, but I am somewhat relieved that my gender is now clarified. ROFL. (Won’t you join with me in blaming WordPress?)

        hahahahahahahaha… here I thought it was your Spanish alter-ego making an appearance, geez! 😆

      • Kizzi says:

        I just want to know what’s in that purse (your Avi)?! 😀

        Actually, made me think of a super hero…you know, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Archugeezera. She opens her purse and does good for humankind. Watch out bad guys, here comes Archugeezera, fully accessorized. 😀 😀 😀

      • archugeezer says:

        Si, mis amigas, Archugeezera to the rescue! That purse contains forged Avenger credentials and a reminder list of my super powers. Also a map to the Poutine Palace.

      • TOfan says:

        “forged Avenger credentials and a reminder list of my super powers” ROTFLOLOL

      • Kizzi says:

        Hahahahahahahahahahaha – too funny!!!! And I am in for the Poutine Palace…just name the place and time and I am there. TOfan has been known to be an expert exporter of Poutine Gravy…yummmmmeeee! Looking now for those fromage en grains de cheddar frais. Woo Hoo!

      I second that emotion! Been staring at that blue V-necked dude for longer than I care to admit while he just “eyes” us … and smiles!!
      My excuse — trying to figure out what venue it is from. I’m thinking he’s playing “A Thousand Miles?”
      His excuse? He’s DAVID!!

    OMG, that 2 yrs later pic of David, LOL! Somehow I don’t think David would ever morph into that, no matter how much the boy eats, haha. Too funny.
    This video is going to be beautiful. Love the new teaser (even if we pretty much know how it ends, although I love your twist to the ending TOfan, good one!
    Great comments, great post and love the title… and such great photos of David from Kari! Somehow don’t think I will be up at 5 am though (my time) to see the premiere of the video, oh such a bad fan, lol.

    A little off topic but this is a really well written article on the subject of downloading illegally. Rather lengthy but I found it so worth the read. Very well done, if interested. Saw the link on twitter.

      Excellent article, peppertara, thanks for posting! I remember having a discussion with my niece when she was still in high school about this… she found it funny that I actually bought my music, she said she figured the artists were all rich (from touring), so it didn’t hurt anyone to download for free. It shocked me how little value was being placed on something that brings so many people so much joy, life-saving even.

      This chart is on the same topic, showing graphically how much artists will earn online (basically, peanuts):

    Breaking news…. David IS wearing a hoodie in the video in case you were wondering. 😆

    ….aaaaand there’s more! 🙂

    guitar

  11. peppertara says:

    Would love to hear David play guitar someday…..and drums! Cute hoodie picture, haha, love the tweets.
    Thanks for the link to the chart TOfan, no, most artists don’t make a lot and so many work their butts off trying. Actually, considering the challenges faced in the industry, David has done quite well for himself and with acting now…..he’s a smart guy and a man who can wear many coats and wear them all so well!
    Love that video from Canton, Ohio. Hadn’t seen that for sometime. So funny and so sweet, he is just so entertaining!

      thanks for posting, kiz, have been away all weekend and just catching up … ““…..What is it about David Archuleta’s singing that makes me drop everything I’m doing and just bask in the beauty of his voice?…” I’ve been trying to figure that out for four years, lol, but now just skip the ‘what is it?’ and carry on with the basking. 😆

  13. peppertara says:

    Well, I did what MC Lady did….basked in the beauty of David’s voice (and in the beautiful simplicity of the video). Great way to start my morning, went to his OS to watch first thing! David is so good in these videos. Great quality too and it is fabulous in HD and full screen. Very nice David!
    (love his lower register too)!
