In what appears to be his final videotaped message, Cory Monteith told fans to "stay out of trouble and stay in school."

Uploaded to YouTube earlier this week, Monteith was reportedly on his way from Japan to Vancouver when he shot the 15-second clip, according to Celebuzz.

He appears relaxed and happy, leaning back on a blue pillow and speaking with a slight grin.

Monteith was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver just days later of an apparent heroin and alcohol overdose. In the wake of his death, his friends and family have remembered him as a great guy with a big heart and a lot of hope.

Meanwhile, "Glee" writers have scrambled to figure out how to handle his tragic passing on the show.
