"I appreciate what he did with the song," says Ruess of the Pleasant Grove singer's acoustic rendition. "It sounds kind of like a Christian praise version." But, as Ruess notes, "The color scheme with the t-shirts is a little weird. Like: red, yellow, blue and slightly darker blue. There are so many different colors besides, you know, darker blue. Maybe he could have explored that." Says Dost: "I loved this video. But my suggestion would be to go more Bon Jovi with it. I kept wanting it to open it up in a strummier way, rather than sticking fairly close to our version."
