I just watched the video after months of hearing the song on the radio, and I didn't end up feeling disappointed.
Instead, I enjoyed the way that it added a whole new dimension to the meaning of the lyrics, especially by the very last part of the video.
I hope you get a kick out of this video as much as I did! Enjoy!
P.S. I love how much Ryan Tedder gets into his piano-playing, so much so that at one point he leaps onto the piano stool with his adorable Converse shoes and jams even harder on the piano keys! So much energy! :)
