Lady Gaga Video Spin-Offs: TaTas Rises to the Top

Posted By on Mon, May 3, 2010 at 4:26 PM

It's impossible to avoid being bombarded by Gaga these days. Not by the Lady herself, but by a barrage of folks dialing in for their 15 minutes of her "Telephone." It's important to stay up on the deluge, though, if only to discern which Gagaites are a waste of camera space and which ones are three minutes of pure genius. So before the day is over, we offer the official Gaga Video Spin-Off Roundup.

On the clever side, of course, there was viral gold in the men in uniform (over 2 million views in less than a week)... 

...Which fared better than the Sesame Street remix, as nostalgic as all those "yip yips" and "ah has" made us. 


Then are are the clips that fit into the good idea/bad execution category. With so many options for dialog on the other end of the ladies' telephone line, these guys go for the news of a car accident?

And finally, where is the viral love for San Francisco drag queen Lady TaTas? Leave it to a strapping local glam goddess to infuse her tribute with tight abs, sleek cinematography, and a quick jab at her, um, package when referencing her very busy "telephone."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
