Yeah. So. This is pretty much what it says on the tin. YouTuber RamsesthePigeon’s original take on the A-ha classic ‘Take on Me’ sees him smacking, slapping and flicking his face to recreate the track. It really is a sight to behold.

The song builds slowly as he introduces each blow to his face that results in a different sound within the track. Funnily enough, this track reminded me of an Australian busker, Pipe Guy, who plays house and techno using a thong (that’s a flip-flop to you Americans) and an intricate series of PVC pipes. At its height, Ramses is taking multiple wallops to the face per second and really makes you wonder what his cheeks looked like after that day of shooting.

Check out the very painful rendition below:
