Take On Me: The Literal Version

(YouTube link)

Oh yeah, Take on Me by the Norwegian group a-ha, a big song in 1985. But wait... this song has been altered to match the video! That makes it worth a listen, doesn't it? -via YesButNoButYes

Totally what went through my mind when I saw the video originally on an old network called music television. Brilliant work, here.

The video is a classic, and it wonderful exercise in 'breaking the bounds of reality', esp for an 80s video. (Man, I miss story-telling videos. To many videos now-a-days just show the band playing or artist dancing, or just TnA.)

Anyhow, this parody was great too, :)

Not bad, but really, why does everything have to make sense. Art doesn't. For it's time that video was stunning, and it's still pretty amazing now.

Not to mention that and "The Sun Always Shines on TV" may be the first videos that are actually joined, plot wise. (Korn did similar with "Freak on a Leash" and "Falling Away From Me".)

And god Bunty Bailey was hot.

I loved that video when I was 12. You youngins just don't understand how innovative this video and MTV was back then. It's sad what it's become.

I'm not sure whether it was funnier before or after I realized that the video was the original. (Oh, the joys of an MTV-deprived childhood...)
