Have You Watched “Telephone” Yet?
I have to say, this video is extremely strange. However, I am not at all surprised. Gaga’s a weird person! But I’ve always got her back and this video works on all levels. It’s crazy, it’s cool-looking, and it’s bewitching. It actually makes “Telephone” a much better song, in my opinion (because, let’s be honest, it’s much weaker than “Bad Romance“). Anyway, this video is supernatural.
Also, did you know that Gaga’s 17-year-old sister makes a cameo in the mini film? When Gaga is on the phone in prison (around the 2:30 mark), her sister is standing behind her against the wall. Cute!
Did you also notice that the truck (the “P***y Wagon”) from the Kill Bill films is in it?! Gaga’s got both the truck and the keys from Mr. Tarantino in this video. I’m not sure how she managed to get that, but it just adds even more to this very Tarantino-esque film, if I do say so myself. Jonas Akerlund has outdone himself this time, really. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should really watch it. I’ve never seen a music video like it!
I also liked how Gaga poked fun at her own rumors that have been said against her. If you know the specific rumor about which I’m talking, you’ll notice it in the video. It’s close to the very beginning…
So check out the video (which you can now buy on iTunes) and go Gaga!
