I was expecting Lady Gaga’s Telephone video to hit the Internet today, what I wasn’t expecting however was that it weighs in at around nine minutes long. The content before the music kicks in is definitely expected to shock (you’ll see what I mean), and it doesn’t stop there either.
The video is directed by Jonas Aklerlund and Lady Gaga, and you can really see the creative input she has over the video. I was disappointed by the flagrant and somewhat embarrassing corporate sponsorship which is constantly on show, but from their perspective I guess it was a good way of covering costs.
The highlights of the video arrive after BeyoncÃ© enters the foray, when we are treated to some very well worked choreography. Anyway enough talk, you have over nine minutes of video to watch! Enjoy.
