Chat Roulette meets Lady Gaga

Chat Roulette and Lady Gaga go hand in hand. Within the urban gay community I run with (and also the Suburban teenage girl community I don’t run with) they’re the two most talked about things. Like, um, really.

This Gaga Telephone spoof may be deemed too lowbrow by some Sundance lovers. Which is precisely why I adore it so much. It shows the great things about Gaga (costumes, laughing at oneself, good old fun) and Chat Roulette (instant human contact, a smile from a stranger). A fun man in a wig and ladies garments miming in a messy room in front of total strangers? Yes, it’s art. And by the reactions of those strangers, and your assured inability to turn this off once you hit play, it’s a hit.
