Nola Chick : Considering what RDJ had just gone through in the years preceding this video, just makes it THAT much more meaningful.

Francisco Vasquez : I want love, but it's impossible A man like me, so irresponsible A man like me is dead in places Other men feel liberated I can't love, shot full of holes Don't feel nothing, I just feel cold Don't feel nothing, just old scars Toughening up around my heart But I want love, just a different kind I want love, won't break me down Won't brick me up, won't fence me in I want a love, that don't mean a thing That's the love I want, I want love I want love on my own terms After everything I've ever learned Me, I carry too much baggage Oh man I've seen so much traffic So bring it on, I've been bruised Don't give me love that's clean and smooth I'm ready for the rougher stuff No sweet romance, I've had enough

tjf4375 : I've just noticed another really clever thing about this video - it's shot in one continuous take with only one camera, no jump cuts or edits. That's impressive.

MrPeterpiper1969 : the four minutes (or so) that redeemed and restarted Robert Downey Jr's career and made his awesome performances as Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes possible. I don't know who picked him for this but it was a masterstroke and a moment of inspiration bordering on genius level. Brilliant timing given what was happening to RDJ at the time.

Stacey Farrell-Elvidge : I remember when this video came out. Robert Downey JR was given permission to briefly come out of rehab to lipsink & film it because he loved the song, had great respect for Elton John & he could identify with the lyrics. Badass actor 🤘🤘🤘🤘

comedycat2 : This came out during the summer of 2001. After he was fired from Ally McBeal, several arrests and hadn't remotely got his life back on track yet... It was incredibly moving and chilling at the time in context, and still is. Fave comeback story, no contest.

tamaris gunther nery : At the end of civil war, tony read a letter from steve. the letter start with this "Tony, I’m glad you’re back at the compound, I don’t like the idea of you rattling around a mansion by yourself." Yep I understood that reference and smiled

Olivia Mitchell : I remember seeing this video and feeling so sad for him at the time. Boy, did he pull it together! I love him and pray he stays strong!! That's my Iron Man!! 💜💜💃💃💃

Jessica Dell : Ironically both RDJ and Elton's drug of choice was cocaine. And they both seeked out love after addiction and got it. So the song is very fitting.

Jonas Butler : Robert Downey Jr. transforms this this song into a whole new kind of beauty. This is one of the most wonderful and unique concepts for a music video I've ever seen.

Jordan White : I want furniture

MARVEL FACTS : 2018 someone?

SubwingOTR : Man, Elton John sure is hot

A Chaps : The Truth is.... I am Elton John.

Drager : This is Tony after his recent break up with Pepper.

Juan Rodriguez : what a sad experience for rdj. he was in a drug rehab facility during the making of this video. the sadness on his face is genuine.

amcanmike : RDJ was at his low point in life,Elton gave him hope,,,nice

RossBayCult : Iron Man wants love too.

Julianna H5782 : every time I relapse, and am so ashamed and filled with hopelessness and apathy... I think of RDJ and watch this. I try to remind myself to never give up, that people sometimes make the same mistake for years before its the very last time. that I'm not worthless. and that I can and will come back from this. that tomorrow is a new day. that even addicts can end up as hero's. brilliant video. both men are such class acts, and full of talent.

Jonas Butler : I played this song for my girlfriend in college. She had never heard it. She said "Isn't it weird how certain chord progressions make you feel a certain way?" I said "Exactly. That's why we are both music majors." We are still friends to this day. She's one hell of a musician too.

Gregory_The Watchman : That's ah dude, playing a dude, singing ah song sung by another dude. Robert Downey Jr. ...nothing but talent.

Liam Redmond : RDJ before his comeback. One of the best actors out there.

Amaris Downey Jr : I want love, but it's impossible A man like me, so irresponsible A man like me is dead in places Other men feel liberated I can't love, shot full of holes Don't feel nothing, I just feel cold Don't feel nothing, just old scars Toughening up around my heart But I want love, just a different kind I want love, won't bring me down Won't break me up, won't fence me in I want a love, that don't mean a thing That's the love I want, I want love I want love on my own terms After everything I've ever learned Me, I carry too much baggage Oh man I've seen so much traffic But I want love, just a different kind I want love, won't bring me down Won't break me up, won't fence me in I want a love, that don't mean a thing That's the love I want, I want love So bring it on, I've been bruised Don't give me love that's clean and smooth I'm ready for the rougher stuff No sweet romance, I've had enough A man like me is dead in places Other men feel liberated But I want love, just a different kind I want love, won't bring me down Won't break me up, won't fence me in I want a love, that don't mean a thing That's the love I want, I want love But I want love, just a different kind I want love, won't bring me down Won't break me up, won't fence me in I want a love, that don't mean a thing That's the love I want, I want love

Sam Zachary : That wrinkle on the back of his shirt always bothered me for some reason

Derek Mooney : Elton was in a mess back in the mid eighties - as chairman of Watford football club the manager at the time Graham taylor walked into the board room, slapped down a full whisky bottle in front of him and made him see the light. Can't help thinking elton saw a kindred spirit when he gave RDJ this gig. The beginning, opportunity and opening of his climbing back from the edge.

Vishal Das : They hired Mark Zukerberg's fashion consultant for this video

An Di : This music video is an illustration of RDJ's second chance at life and I find it extremely moving. I'm so glad that he's all well now and still with us!

Chiara Varricchio : My God he's so good looking...

luigimx1 : is it me or this song sounds so Beatles like??

Daniel Smith : This song saved his career, after it went down hill.

Samia Bohórquez : ¿por qué? ¿por qué lo enamoran a uno así? :( no le basta con ser tremendo actor..

Fernanda Leon : He's so much more than Iron Man. He's one of the greatest actors of our generation.

littlesmew : Those Brown eyes...

Kristine Sanservino : LAWD RDJ is one sexy mofo! Love this song!

Jane Donut : Those eyes.

Diego Castillo : si tuviera q ser homosexual por un hombre creo q seria por robert :'v

Patrick Bautista : TONY STARK WAS SING THIS IN A CAVE! WITH A BOX OF SCRAPS!

Alfredo Hernández Lara : Am I the only one who feels deeply moved by this video? Let alone the whole RDJr situation. (Wich is also touching). Elton composed a master piece here.

Clarissa kay : Who's watching this for Robert Downey Junior? he's bloody lovely xoxoxox

Naomi Armitage : Heard this on the radio, and replayed my own version of this video in my head (starring me, of course), but couldn't remember the original video, so I came here. COMPLETELY forgot this starred Robert Downey Jr. I knew there was a reason I always loved this song.

[creative emo-phase username] : *Tom Holland voice* oh my god. It's Robert Downey jr
