A “monstery” “found” in 1314. And you are “Well Come”. Thanks to @ketan_san for capturing and sharing this #Englishgaffe all the way from Bahar Dar, Ethiopia, located on an island on Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile. #International now. Looks like we will go places with these captures:-)

“Take on Me” by A-ha hits a billion views #takeonme1BN

This week, A-ha‘s smash hit “Take on Me” crossed a billion views!!! A 1985 hot favourite for me it was. Just into Engineering and I remember my friend’s sister, Daksha had been to the US for the summer and had recorded this from Z 100 a radio station based in New York state. We then had not watched the video but were just hooked on to the catchy tune.

The video, when we finally watched, was one amazing piece. Pencil art brought to life and during those times it was a novelty indeed. Partially black and white and partially in colour, it was an amazing visual delight. Girls swooned over the lead singer, Morten Harket’s looks.

The Norwegian group wasn’t exactly a one hit wonder but this song by far has been their most successful to date. Small wonder that it has touched a billion views. This is one of the few pre-90s music videos to join the billion-views club alongside “November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses and “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.

Congratulations A-ha. You deserve it. I am glad I was there to witness this piece of history.

I wonder if I can get my bike repaired in this garage. Their spellings need urgent repair 😊 Spotted this #Englishgaffe somewhere in Ghatkopar West. #blooper

Privileged to visit Vidyalankar Institute of Tech. as part of @igiftlife. Students & Prof. Harish were all pumped up to share the info abt #organdonation amongst their peers. Good luck students & keep up the fantastic work. Special thanks to Vishwas Deshpande for making it happen

What happens when you don’t care about your branding? The plastic piece in the word vegetarian fell off making it an #Englishgaffe. Thanks @urnita for sharing this #blooper captured somewhere near Borivili station.

This came to me as a WhatsApp forward but it is epic. #Englishgaffe #blooper
