that’s not lady gaga! …but she approves


One day, I was bruising through my favorite magazine (actual and online), Entertainment Weekly, and came across this article.

Unfortunately, I was at work and couldn’t actually view the video posted in the article until I was at my own PC. Due to the fact that the “Bad Romance” video was the key factor that finally flipped me into a Gaga fan, I felt the need to check out this so-called parody. Some of you have already seen this on my Facebook page when I first saw it, but here it is again for your viewing pleasure. I had to share and give credit where credit is due. (NOTE: there is a “bloopers” section the last portion of this video that’s NSFWish, full of swears. I don’t feel it’s necessary, but hey, these kids are having fun, let ’em enjoy it.)

Not only do I think their version is awesome and ultra accurate to the original, I love how creative they were in recreating the scenes, shots and “special effects.” Even the wardrobe is impressive. As if to say, “Even you can be Lady Gaga!” Super kudos! On top of all that, recognition from the Lady herself! Nothing quite like being recognized by your idol. But that’s another reason why I appreciate her as an artist: a fan of her fans.

I’m including the back story found on the YouTube page.

So, here’s the story. Two of us got Flips for Christmas. And we were all in the car, and Bad Romance comes on the radio. So naturally, we start rocking out to it, dancing in the car like a bunch of freaks. Ian, being the thinker, whipped out his Flip and started recording it. When the song was over, we realized he never hit record. First we were all “Oh maan.” Then we were all “LET’S REMAKE THE ACTUAL VIDEO!” Finally we were all “WHOO! YEAAAH! \(:D)/” A big thank you goes out to Lady Gaga for tweeting our video! Since then, views have exploded!

So here you go. Enjoy!! Of course, our video will never be as good as the original.

I con promise this won’t be the last time I’m blogging about her. Love her or hate her, she’s someone to pay attention to. I know she’s got mine.

  1. I caught this right when Gaga tweeted it (lucky timing) and was blown away at these kids’ creativity. I totally retweeted it. And for the record, I am a little monster. Grr.
