Well, what else are you going to do for a cover of Take On Me? 

Featuring Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard and his band Calpurnia, Carrick Moore Gerety recreates Rivers Cuomo's teenage years and the birth of the band that became Weezer. And then, their live action performance turns into animation, which is very much in the style of the iconic Steve Barron-directed video of the A-ha song.

Gerety and fellow animators Jocelyn & Jocelyn have done a fine job with that. And Wolfhard gets to try out a big hair look that he'll probably be sporting in the next season of ST.
