While the video is nothing new, this YouTube version is quite funny. They replaced the song with one which explains what is literally happening on screen.
This was a-ha’s only #1 hit in the United States. The video, directed by Steve Barron, was inspired by the animated short “Commuter”, created by Michael Patterson. The video also draws from the film “Altered States”.
Steve Barron went on to direct the live action “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Coneheads”.
