The awesome Gaga/Beyonce 'Telephone' parody video you knew was coming: Watch it here

Time to check your Virgin Mobile, Ms. Gaga; you’ve got mail.

Her Honey-Bee-buzzed “Telephone,” the nine-minute music video/lady-incarceration celebration/product-placement boogaloo that cornered the pop-culture conversation last week, now has its own parody. (Not the song’s first or only homemade tribute; we know.)

But if we do say so, it’s kind of a jackpot, even if—or because—the clip looks like it was made for eight bucks and a stack of expired OfficeMart coupons:

Bless the youngsters, with their YouTube skills, their dollar-store wigs, and their spectacular seven-day turnaround. Key of Awesome, we applaud you! Now back to the basement, and give us some Bieber fun, stat! Oh wait, you did.

    This is too funny, true, and actually really well written. Props to them.

    • Terri

      Extremely well written and clever. Kudos to whomever came up with this.

  • darclyte

    Good stuff. The Key of Awesome folks are doing a pretty darn good job with these.

    • kct

      Check out their Adam Lambert video, Idol fans!

      • BJohnson

        I love that Lambert parody, esp. that line about not letting him show another guy on the video.

  • RyRyNYC

    OMG… This is better than the actual video… HAHAHA. And I am a GaGa fan, but that Telephone video while better than 97% of videos done today is still a step down after her one two punch of Paparazzi and Bad Romance.

  • Sasha Grey

    This video is hot. I just pounded two out. Great lyrics and the broads are hot!

    • DJ Techno Tsunami

      @ Sasha – I agree with you. The video is very hot! It would be better if they got into a fight and white girl won. What, What! What you lookin at?

      • Colt 45 and 2 zig zags

        @ DJ Techno Tsunami – You’re a racist! You want the white girl to win… I’m looking at you, racist!

  • allie

  • Melanie

    I love the parody, but considering the outfits are nearly dead-on, I’m sure it cost more than 8 bucks to make.

  • Jackie

    I love the “three nuns in a tub with a garden knome”.. haha! What?

    Also the way “Gaga” said she’d drop a piano on Jay-Z.. the way she said Jay-Z was hilarious for some reason.

    • j

      Exactly- the three nuns with a garden knome was so random yet hilarious!

        djmestar69 on October 24, 2011 I just got my iPad 2 and I am totally blown away. My MacBook pro is sitting in the corner and I haven not missed a beat Glad I haven not bought it and got it For FREE, my cousin received his ipad 2 for free too lol. The web address, if I remember correctly, was:

  • Charles

    As if Beyonce would be scared of Lady Gaga. Love them both, but I have a hard time believing Honey Bee would be scared of anyone.

    • Jess

      Um, it’s a parody.

  • AlexG

    Very, very well done!!!

  • Lee

    Hilarious! I’m going to check them out on YouTube. “Telephone” is the music video that Quinten Tarentino never made, but it’s awesome in it’s own bizarre way.

  • Jake

    Fantastic – and she nails it on the head: the video is truly to distract from the mediocrity of the song as well as a perfect example of the pretentious kitchen sink approach to ‘art’.

  • Michael

    This is absolutely terrible. One of the worst parodies I’ve ever seen. The writing is God awful, I could write something better in 5 minutes. How can this be the best one out there EW? This article disappoints me.

      SCHLITZMIESTER on September 21, 2010 at least one person who hwecatd this hazzz to know the name of the song playing, cmon, i realy want to know!!!!

    I love the parody, but considering the outfits are nearly dead-on, I’m sure it cost more than 8 bucks to make.
