Fox and Glee have released a short but sweet tribute video in honor of Cory Monteith who died on July 13.

The brief montage is billed as a “Memorial Card” in the title on YouTube. The video includes a few clips of Cory as Finn, including one where he kisses fictional and real life girlfriend Rachel Berry/Lea Michele:

The video ends with the text message: “Cory Monteith / Forever in our hearts”

The purpose of this video is not clear given how short it is. Our best guess is that this may be aired during Fox primetime programming over the next few weeks. We’re sure that Fox and the Glee cast have much, much larger tributes in store to send off their beloved friend, co-worker, and actor.

At their Television Critics Association panel today, Fox confirmed that the Monteith tribute episode will center around drug abuse. It will air three weeks into the season 5 premiere. Network president Kevin Reilly also suggested that the show’s sixth season will be its last because they have two major arcs they are in the midst of telling.

Glee season 5 kicks off Thursday, September 26 on Fox.

    Those 12 seconds were the saddest 12 seconds I’ve seen in a while :’[

    They played that before the episode that aired tonight even though it was a re-run. I wasn’t expecting it and it almost made me cry

      I wasn’t expecting it before the episode (which is one of my favorites due to the whole film aspect). I did cry. And then seeing the episode again and watching Darren and Chris perform that number from “Moulin Rouge”…I just lost it all over again.

    I think the one that Fox Latin America did was much better, here’s the link http://youtu.be/T-UxiytxpOk

      And I’m sobbing again. *Grabs tissues*

    I saw that too just before the show started and it brought me to tears. Even watching Finn in this episode I cried. I even cried when I saw Rachel cry when Santana confronted her about what she found in the bathroom. I won’t be able to take it when I see Rachel cry when Finn dies or when the cast talks about Cory. Is the Fox network giving us a taste how sad it will be during this tribute episode.
