My head is about to explode because I can’t process Lady GaGa’s video for “Just Dance”.
(for a high-res version, click here)
I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be, and I’m not sure if I like it because it’s awesome or because it’s mind-boggling.
I saw it on a video show featuring indie & underground music videos, and the visuals have a hipster/electro aesthetic, but the song at its core is a dance-pop anthem. The lyrics are horrible, drunk-girl babbling, and GaGa sounds quite a bit like Christina Aguilera (which isn’t a bad thing, but not terribly characteristic of the image being portrayed). Basically, it’s a huge mind fuck.
In any case, it’s catchy beyond belief. I wouldn’t be surprised if it become the Hot Summer Jam of 2008.
