I'm completely crushing on this song something fierce today ... and it kinda got me thinkin, the chickadee in this video - who is she, and where is she now?
After googling like a crazy woman ... no really, I looked like the crazy cat lady from the Simpsons - only instead of throwing cats I was throwing down keys on my keyboard. HIZZUAH!!!
Annnyyywwaaayyyyyyyy ... the chickadee from the A-ha video is named Bunty Bailey. (HAHAHAHA totally not a joke.)
Here's her wiki:
Therese "Bunty" Bailey (born 1961) is an English model, dancer, and actress. Bunty started her career as a dancer in the erotic dance group Hot Gossip in the early 1980s. She became known as the girl in the early a-ha's music videos Take on Me, and The Sun Always Shines on T.V. made in 1985. She met Morten Harket, the lead singer in a-ha on the set, and the pair subsequently dated.
She has since appeared in several films, with her last role in 2008 as a Gypsy Mamma in Defunct. She is currently living in Wraysbury, Berkshire, working as a children's dance teacher at Wraysbury and Datchet Village Hall. She was listed by Fox News as being one of the The Hottest '80s Video Vixens. Bunty has two sons, who were born in the late 1990s. In June 2009, she was one of the first people to take advantage of the UK government car scrappage scheme and was invited to breakfast with the Prime Minister at the time Gordon Brown.
