Will Young won the British version of "American Idol," called "Pop Idol" (yeah, yeah, I know the British version came first) in 2002.
He's achieved solid success since, and continues to make music, even releasing a greatest hits compilation in 2009.
What does he have to do with dogs?
Young's latest single, "Come On,'' has a terrific video, a 3-minute, 28-second gem that has a beginning, a middle, a happy ending, sadness, comedy, heroes, villians and even a flashback. (!)
And the unquestioned star of said video? It's a beautiful border collie, who neither sings nor has a single line.
