Video Review: David Guetta & Chris Willis “Love Is Gone”

A twentysomething man parks the car in Cindy’s parking lot. He turns to the twentysomething woman (Kelly Thiebaud) and tells her, “I don’t love you anymore.” She says, “that’s all?” He retorts, “yes, that’s all. Stop screaming. Just shut up and go to work.” Pointing her finger, she tells him, “you’re a loser. I don’t ever want to speak to you again. You’re a complete loser, you don’t deserve me and I hate you! Asshole!”

Her boss crosses his arms as he watches her walk into the restaurant. A 18-year-old boy waves at her and the boss smacks him on the arm. She walks by her employee of the month certificate on the wall. Standing at the mirror, she washes her face and puts her hair up in the ponytail. She serves a police man and woman coffee. Two sixtysomething women smile as she places their breakfasts on the table. She hands a second twentysomething man a menu and talks to him while he reads.

The police officers nod their heads. The twentysomething woman pours coffee into the second twentysomething man’s cup as she dances in place. The coffee spills over the cup. A fortysomething man stands in the kitchen side-eyes her as he places a meal under the light. She slides in aisle as people dance in place. A thirtysomething man plays the air guitar by his table. One of the sixtysomething women plays the drums at her table. A table of twentysomethings in the corner throw chips at one another.

A second fiftysomething man headbangs as he sits on his motorcycle in the restaurant. She slides in the aisle carrying a cake. The cook puts whipped cream on pancakes. The police woman and man kiss. Her boss yells at her. She smashes a cake in his face. The 18-year-old young man laughs. Her boss orders her to leave. She stands by the door and sees the twentysomething man. The twentysomething man smells a bouquet of roses and she smiles. A second twentysomething woman runs out the restaurant, bumps into her and hugs the twentysomething man. She turns her head as they kiss.

Rating: 4/5

The twentysomething woman giggles as she talks with 18-year-old young man. She gives him some of her tips. He puts it in his pocket as he carries the dishes. She sits at the booth and says her now ex-boyfriend was dating another server. The 18-year-old young man says, “brown long hair?” She nods and reaches for a container. He says she was would always wink at him while you were with other customers. She puts her sandwich in the container and says it makes her sick.

The 18-year-old young man says she’s better off and there’s other guys out there for her. The twentysomething woman says it’s too bad he’s too young for her. He’s just like a little brother to her. The 18-year-old young man looks down and says he’s almost finished.

In the bathroom, he punches the bathroom stall. She asks the fiftysomething cook if he heard the noise. The fiftysomething cook says it’s just some animals wanting leftovers. She grabs a leftover meat and walks to the back. The 18-year-old young man takes a piece of meat and asks her when he won’t be too old. She puts her hand on his shoulder and says “5 years.” The 18-year-old young man says they should get going. They both open tomorrow morning.
