Everyone remembers the video for a-ha’s “Take on Me,” but I suspect most people, like me, didn’t really pay attention to what was going on–most probably just looked at the animation and said, “Hey, that’s pretty cool for 1985.” Also, the video doesn’t have much to do with the song.
That’s a shame, because it really is a very touching tale about a girl in love with a guy from a comic book (do girls read comic books in Scandinavian countries? Geeks.)
Here is the full tale, in all of its romantic glory.
This one seems to be going viral pretty quickly, so pardon me if you’ve seen it already.
