It's no fancy-schmancy album cover art, but it sure is pretty.

American Idol champ Kris Allen has unveiled the music video for his first single, "Live Like We're Dying," and overall, it's pretty standard. A guitar-wielding Allen performs his song in the middle of the desert on a larger-than-life-size digital clock, while countless unexplained tattered and torn curtains blow in the wind around him.

You know, that old chestnut.

The former Idoler does what he can to turn up the heat on the small screen, at one point literally throwing what looks to be a gigantic fireball. 

On the other hand, as videos of the coffeehouse variety go, it's not too shabby.

You decide: Does this debut make a big splash or is it just another drop in the bucket?
