Take On Me - Literal Video Version

I was in the process of putting together a list of my favourite music videos of all time and was seeing which ones I could find on YouTube. On this list, of course, has to be "Take On Me" by A-Ha. Although it is very '80s the comic strip mixed with real life is still good to watch to this day and often makes the grade in "Channel 4 100 Best..." shows (best video, floor-fillers, etc).

When getting the video of YouTube I came across this hilarious Literal version of the music video. Although the music and the video are exactly the same, the lyrics have been altered to describe what is happening in the video. The best thing about the singing is that it very closely matches the sound and tone of lead vocalist Morten Harket, so avoids joining the other awful renditions you can easily find on YouTube. It's a brilliant idea, and I'll be posting a couple of more examples by the same user over the next few days.
