Current Mood: pipe wrench fight!
Current Music: 2 Live Crew -- Sports Weekend (seriously)
Who did that? It was great! Tick was sitting next to me not really paying attention, and suddenly looked up and said "Those are the lyrics at all....what the fuck?"
So that pretty much made it worth it alone.
Hahahaha. I'd like to see that done with other videos.
That totally didn't answer the "Who did that?" question :P
That was awesome! Far better than the original song by Norwegian Supergroup "Ah-Ha." Thank you so much for sharing that piece of insanity! I love a good pipe wrench fight!
Yeah, it's an iconic video and it's done in a style that was cutting edge at the time, but it's soooo cheesy, and this makes it a little more tolerable.
For some reason, it has become popular for punk bands to cover old pop songs, and I've probably heard five different punk versions of Take On Me (the one by Reel Big Fish is pretty good...). Come to think of it, I blame the Ramones. The whole soundtrack to Rock & Roll High School probably only has two original songs.

Pipe wrench fight!
It was more entertaining than I expected it to be. I certainly remember the song & video but upon watching realized that I'd never seen more than the magic frame part.
Also: Fire & Sleet & Candlelight by Derlith, A-H, at HPBE for $50.

Re: Pipe wrench fight!
It's a pretty iconic video, but it never had anything to do with the song... until now.
Anyway, that Derleth book is a little tempting... I've decided I'm not too interested in the three Arkham House HPL volumes because as pretty as they are, I already have their contents and I have too many books to lug around when I have to move. Arkham has published a lot of material that isn't available elsewhere, though, and that stuff might be worth my time to acquire. However, I can justify owning Miscellaneous Writings and the Selected Letters volumes, and the multitude of fiction by Derleth and others.
I dunno. Your subject got me a little too excited and then it didn't quite live up... except for the pipe wrench fight.
Pfft. Whateva. There's no pleasing some people.
I was pretty entertained by "I'm gonna kick some ass with my own pipe wrench." Myself, I'd like to see this done with, say, the video for Ana Ng by They Might Be Giants, which deliberately had nothing to do with the song.
I said it last night, but am imortalizing it via live journal. We need to hang out with these guys, that or find the real live Gilmore Girls.
