Hilarious VW Commercial Features 80s Classic ‘Take on Me’ [VIDEO]

There’s no question that the 80s are in again. Last week, we introduced you to Corey Hart’s modern day version of “Sunglasses at Night.” This week, another 80s staple comes back alive thanks to a hysterical TV commercial from Volkswagen.

a-ha’s smash “Take on Me” became a hit in the U.S. primarily because of its innovative music video where a cartoon figure beckons the reader to join him in comic.

The video was inspired by the transformation scene in the 1980 film Altered States. Every scene was shot live then projected onto paper and traced. It was directed by Steve Barron, who was responsible for much of MTV’s playlist in the 80s, as he also directed “Billie Jean,” “She Blinded Me With Science,” “Karma Chameleon” and “Summer Of ’69.”

Fast forward to 2013 and Volkswagen’s “Feeling Free” campaign. They have recreated the legendary video and thrown in a very comical finish. Enjoy!
