Sex, sadomasochism and rock’n’roll

New music video for Celice

The music video for a-ha’s new single Celice premiered on September 24 in Germany. The video was directed by Jörn Heitmann, who has been Rammstein’s regular video director. Celice is not being shown in Norway yet – it might meet some problems getting shown on some TV stations due to its explicitly sexual content.

The Norwegian newspaper VG showed pictures from the video over two whole pages today, under the subtle headline “RAW SEX IN NEW A-HA VIDEO.” This is not the first time a-ha’s videos have stirred some controversy; in their Velvet video (directed by Harald Zwart) the band was accused of flirting with necrophilia.

Their very first video, Take On Me, also got a lot of attention, but that was because of its landmark use of animation and real footage. The new video has lot of references to Take On Me, only with a slightly different touch. Magne, who wrote the song, calls the video “a kind of grown up version of Take On Me.”

“The video is about people who have lost their direction in the hunt for meaning – and loneliness as a result of lost innocence,” he says to VG.
