I’m not exactly a proponent of Lady Gaga, but I did spend two days this fall with “Poker Face” stuck in my head non-stop. Since then, there have been two excellent televised versions of her catchy song — first by Eric Cartman on “South Park,” then by Christopher Walken on BBC One. The video above mixes all three versions, and it. Is. A-maaaaaaay-ziiinnnnngggggggggg. Not only is the song well-mixed, but the video includes clips of Walken in The Deer Hunter and Fatboy Slim’s classic “Weapon of Choice” video.
It’s days like this that I feel sorry for people who make three or four times as much money as I do by working in pharmaceutical sales or trading stocks or some other crappy grown-up job. What a joyless existence. It’s like, yeah buddy, that’s great that you wear nice suits and own a penthouse suite, but I’m not wearing pants and I just watched a Christopher Walken/Cartman/Lady Gaga video. Winner: me.
