One of my favorite things about YouTube is the amount of crazy and bizarre videos that make you go “wtf is going on here?” and question all that you have come to know about life. Leave Britney Alone! anyone?
Needless to say when I first saw this video of a Chinese old-folks choir covering Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”, I was so confused as to what was happening. The first 30 seconds isn’t anything out of the ordinary. But after that, the crazy starts to happen. The choir appears on stage in this Hollywood Squares-like contraption that looks to resemble a house of sorts while busting out “Bad Romance”. Talk about an entrance!
I love their use of actions that accompany the song and a variety of props to shake things up and keep the viewer on their toes. And on top of it all, the choir adds a touch of flair when they incorporate a dialogue scene.
All jokes aside, you can tell that this group of retired senior citizens are having the time of their lives performing this song. And that warms my cold little heart. Whether or not you’re a Lady Gaga fan, it’s hard not to smile while watching this video. Mother Monster would be proud.
