Remember the music video for A-Ha's "Take on Me," where a guy chases a girl through the pages of a comic book? Oakland new wave/indie rock group Maldroid certainly does. It wisely appropriated the concept for its "He Said She Said" video, which surpassed 2,200 other entries to be named best music video in a recent YouTube contest for independent bands. Hundreds of thousands of YouTubers cast votes in the competition. Maldroid, which has only been together since March of this year, was awarded a trip to NYC, an appearance on Good Morning America, and a whole bunch of Gibson gear. The band returns home from its trip to the Big Apple tomorrow. Update: We've got the whole scoop on Maldroid on the cover of our 2/14 issue.
