Audible Australia is on a mission to show the dangers and frustrations of reading books with a flashback to the 80s and some cringe-worthy lyric changes.
Set to a cover of Roxette’s ‘Listen to Your Heart’, singers Craig McLachlan and Jordan Raskopoulos encourages readers to “listen to your book”—particularly in situations when reading is distracting or inappropriate.
Among the different scenarios given, it shows people walking, driving, gardening and riding the bus all coming to difficulty. However, with Audible, they are able to give focus on the activity and listen rather than read.
Be warned, the video is two-minutes long, but the earworm is forever.
