David Cook debuts a music video in support of his newest single "Light On". Filmed at L.A. Valley College, the music video was directed by Wayne Isham, the man behind Britney Spears' "Piece of Me" music video.

The music video chronicles the story of a boy working at a restaurant and falling in love with his female colleague who dated another boy from the town. Near the end, the girl fights with her boyfriend in his car and is left stranded late at night on the side of the road. The boy from the restaurant then shows up on his bike and offers to take her home.

"Light On" is a song co-written by Soundgarden and Audioslave's frontman Chris Cornell, as well as famed producer/songwriter Brian Howes. The single will be among the new tracks on Cook's major-label debut album, "David Cook", which is slated for purchase on November 18 in the U.S.

I agree with cookifann above. This song has much greater emotional depth than a fairly shallow 'girl gets dumped by jerk boyfriend and is rescued by hard-working unnoticed good guy' storyline. Still love the song, and there's nothing really wrong with the video, especially the parts where David is rockin out, but this song would have been a natural to portray a 'soldier leaves family to face horrors of war' kind of storyline - something with real emotional depth. Still this song rocks and 'Declaration' from SNL was even better. Can't wait for the album! :)

Great shots of David. Been without for too long. Pant. pant. Storyline was pretty amateur. Like something my film co-op might have done. Hurry up album!!!!

Those shots of Dave eyeing the camera and the band rockin' the stage? Hot as hell. The storyline? Immature and completely irrelevant. Must be trying to hook all those air-headed, easily biased teenagers this country has.

He was also rude to fans after SNL, because his skank gf was with him. What a jerk

what is so excellent about it people. NOthing original, nothing to do with the song. It was boring, especially since his guard dog slut girlfriend Caldwell was there supervising. Cook has become boring, he is acting too married.

I have fallen in love with David Cook all over again...and again...and again...every time I look at him in this video. I'd like to just cut out the other bits and just watch him. Who cares about the dumb story line? His voice sounds awesome...I'd leave my light on for him forever!

I want to do numerous X-rated things to him that I can't mention.

Loved It! I'm almost old enough to be his mother ... but wow, is he HOT or what? I wish him many years of success!

I had expected the video to portray someone going off to war...but I guess that might not have played as well in Peoria (or whatever city that was). Anyway, I love everything David Cook puts out because he puts his heart and soul into everything he does. I hope he paces himself, he might have a prolific career like Neil Diamond but if you have listened to Neil Diamond's voice these days its very very "rough". Save your voice David we want to listen to you 40 years from now!
