I need a small break from compiling links posts (I’ll be back next week), so let’s talk about the adorableness that is a-ha’s video for “Take On Me”.
We have a young woman–who is wearing sensible clothing!–reading a comic book and she literally gets pulled in and has an adventure! She’s a little bit passive, but it’s clear she knows what she wants and that would be Morten Harket. Can’t say that I blame her on that front. There’s some conflict with the pipe wrench fight, she escapes out of the comic book and then, when she gets home, she gets the guy!
