What began as curiosity ended as… well, pleased confusion I guess. The first thing you’ll notice about the video for Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s new song “Telephone” is that it’s absolute madness. Like, completely crazy. They make Lady Gaga penis jokes, she wears easily a dozen costumes (cigarette sunglasses!), Beyonce says “motherf*cker” and the whole thing is basically a Tarantino-esque look back at exploitation flicks with bizarre dance sequences inserted in.
In short: Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s “Telephone” video is the “Thriller” of insane product placement music videos. The song is whatever (and I’m pro-Gaga, pro-Beyonce) but this will fill up your WTF quotient for the day.
