Literal Videos - Hilarious!

I pondered posting this in Recommend some music videos to me! or Silly Humor but I thought it warranted it's own post

Ever wish singers just sang what was happening in the music video? Well now they do...

And there's even more in dascottjr's channel.

To point out one very good one, A-ha, Take on me.

Note, seems the original is gone, so this is a shorter version.

Also a different but related theme is literally interpreting the sounds in foreign videos as English words, for example here's a good one, though slightly NSFW.

I've seen the a-ha before.  Here's a link to the full-length:

That and the literal version of Never Gonna Give You Up (the rickroll song) are my favorites:

Most of the outside links above are dead... so maybe (hopefully) this will follow suit.  It's literally absurd.
Diamond Nuts does this a lot better though it's not on YouTube.   ;D

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.  But I'm not sure what it means to be foreheaded. :)

Other vids must've been funny since they're banned.  :)
