9 Minutes of Awesome

I love this tune (Telephone by Lady Gaga) so I was killer excited for the video to come out, and let me tell you it did not disappoint!

So apparently she is in prison and is wearing cigarette glasses and chains. I'm pretty sure prison reform laws mean that nobody has to literally wear chains while incarcerated, I guess Gaga didn't get the memo? Also, those glasses must be worth a fortune in prison bucks.

The next notable outfit involves Diet Coke curlers and a badass studded jacket. Also, I heard the brunette in this frame is her younger sister? The Diet Coke is the first in a long line of unfortunate video product placement from Virgin Mobile, Polaroid and some lame dating website. The product placement was super disappointing, but I guess this just shows that Lady Gaga is the Queen of Commercialism, bar none? Image over music everyday.

SCANTILY CLAD WOMEN!

Gaga gets bailed out of prison wearing a funky hat. What a classy lady.

Here we are continuing with the subliminal message in the song aka TELEPHONE. Nice 'telephone' headpiece. It really goes well with the title of the song.

Yes, whenever I choose to poison people while cooking contaminated foodstuffs my preferred attire is always rubber.

The Mickey Mouse glasses from the Paparazzi video make a return appearance! This time Beyonce is wearing them and she looks fierce.

This is the outfit where Lady Gaga quits her day job as an 'entertainer' and turns into a mega pro-wrestler. The facial expression is perfect, all she is missing is a huge belt.

Beyonce, Honey Bee, whatever you want me to call you - this outfit is kinda rad. It reminds me of bejeweled Balmain, but rad nonetheless.

A leopard print CATsuit? How clever.

Finally the video ends with Gaga and Beyonce running "far far away" to go join the Mormon cultist subsect of the FLDS church. Its ironic that they choose to do so in a truck named the "Pussy Wagon". The intellectual juxtaposition is killing me.

TO BE CONTINUED...

The truck at the end is from Kill Bill, right?

I've watched this video more times than I'd care to admit. My mouth dropped open the first time I saw it and as soon as I would find the power to close it something would ake it fall open once again.

When she is cooking i don't think she is wearing rubber? I think it's wax paper to go along with the whole cooking thing.

Elizabeth said...

If there's anything I love more than Beyonce, it's Lady Gaga and Beyonce together.

I loved the diet coke hair cans because I thought it was hilarious, but the rest of the product placement (especially Virgin Mobile) was a little over the top.

I love Lady Gaga and all her crazy. Great video.

Shopper said...

I think cigarettes glasses an coke curlers need patent. Love the video.

jess said...

I always look foreward to her videos and I loved this one.

Maddie said...

I think she put the product placement in because the video is supposed to show how people are obsessed with commercialism but I might be wrong. I loved it hehe

i liked your commentary.

Becca Jane said...

She is always interesting, that's for sure. My fave video is still bad romance though, have to say.

Irene said...

Apparently Tarantino was very excited to be lending it to GaGa... who would have thought?

Don't forget the Lady Gaga Heartbeats In-hear Headphones, lol! (which I might actually buy if they weren't like 100 dollars....)

I love this video so much I've been watching it every day this week - Fabulous!

the curlers are stolen from another artist's video (which is better):
