Literally Creative

Whether you're a child of the eighties or not, A-ha's video for the song, 'Take On Me', is widely regarded as one of the pop music videos that helped pushed the genre forward and gave it some semblance of legitimacy as an art form.

What other videos get you thinking differently about what mass media TV was about and what places like YouTube represent?
