What’s the hook?
Celebrating ONE BILLION YouTube views of ‘’Take On Me’’ with the release of the official music video, as directed by Steve Barron.
The video for “Take On Me” that everyone knows today is actually the second video made for the song. The original, which was released in 1984, was replaced in 1985 by a new version directed by Steve Barron.
Soon after that version of “Take On Me” debuted, the Norwegian group rocketed to international stardom as the song topped the charts in 36 different countries and became one of the best-selling singles of all time.
‘’When you saw everything together, it was just like wow! This is just better than expectations, this is just amazing! The artistry of the animator, combined with the clear narrative idea of a love affair across dimensions.’’ – Magne Furuholmen
