Show This Guy, Now Cut Back To These Two

The worst, laziest crime a music video can commit is to directly interpret the lyrics. It’s unimaginative and adds nothing to the song.

However, when you change the song lyrics so they literally interpret what’s happening in the video- particularly when the video is something atrociously absurd like A-Ha’s “Take On Me”- you end up with a cross between Mystery Science Theater 3000 and a bad stage musical. What I’m saying is this is brilliantly awesome.

    I think the only other biggest offender of this HANUS crime is Paolo Nutini’s “New Shoes”. Basically, he gets new shoes. Nice.
