What if everything in life was more literal? A-Ha’s “Take On Me”: Literal Video Version

As a member of the MTV generation (I remember when MTV was still all music videos instead of bad semi-reality-show-contests) I have found memories of A-Ha’s “Take On Me”. Regardless of how you felt about the song, you had to admit that the video was pretty cool (and revolutionary for the time). However, the video’s storyline never made much sense . . . until now. With the literal translation it suddenly makes sense – you gotta love a pipe wrench fight. Enjoy.
