Shine on Me: Europop meets live-action roleplaying

There is nothing I can say about the clip embedded above that would possibly prepare you for the awesomeness contained within, but I am going to try: Imagine A-Ha's seminal "Take on Me" clip, then replace the cool animation with live-action roleplayers and production values on the level of your average made-for-TV (specifically the SciFi Channel) movie. If that doesn't intrigue you, how about some sweet swordplay, a bunch of dragons and the least masculine 'stache-and-goatee combo I have ever seen? No matter how you slice it, this video is must-see TV (and don't let the fact it is on the Internet dissuade you), and no matter what you do, don't stop watching! It only gets better as it goes on. (special thanks to Topless Robot for bringing this to my attention!) -- Cory Casciato

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
