Drax The Destroyer : Tony Stark has the voice of an angel. It's like he's imitating the god-man.

RossBayCult : Iron Man wants love too.

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

Giovanni Laureato : I was young and I thought for years that robert downey jr was elton john

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

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

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

AnderssonArad : Robert is so good as a realtor

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.

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

Aganazee : Did the guitar solo and melody make anyone else think of George Harrison for a sec?

MARVEL FACTS : 2018 someone?

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.

Kate B. : It was shocking at the time that RDJ was in this video. Multiple arrests, rehab. Folks thought he was done.

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.

Mr Marshfellow : I hope this song is in the Endgame soundtrack

mista : the little wrinkle on his tshirt( at his back) is makin me crazy!!

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!

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

Maggie Obando - theMagnoliaNet : Oh, my God... I'm so in love with Robert Downey Jr... He was perfect in Ally Mcbeal... He'll be my platonic love forever!!! <3<3<3

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.

MARVEL FACTS : Tony after infinty war😂😂

Jane Donut : Those eyes.

Rithanya Sevakula : Those eyes ! ugh I cant

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

Sunan Mar : Hes look like young tony stark in captain america civil war

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.

nikkygtv : I saw the thumbnail and was like "ay is that Robert Downey Jr"

fuad Bambang : RDJ is just so perfect for this song, he could represent the essence of the song.

Fil 10 : Hm, that guy looks really good, I hope he will have a nice career one day...

Racehorse Champ : I want iron man, just a different kind

Aftergl0w77 : Wow I can't stop watching this. Great song. The video is so simple yet stylish. Robert looks great,.. it's mesmerising, those eyes and short hair... oh boy, phew :o

alejandro navarro vadillo. : this video is before...tony stark and sherlock holmes.

Helinho Mercearia : Homem de ferro x Elton john belíssima música Simplesmente Elton john

littlesmew : Those Brown eyes...

Melvortar naxtar : i don't wanna go mr stark :(


J M : such a Beatles vibe

Just D.O. EXO : Sexy man !

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