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!

It’s awesome and I love it–especially when you look at other videos from the decade.
