US Military, Lady Gaga, and Ke$sha
One hopes that regardless of how we feel about America's involvement in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, we all support our troops for their courage and patriotism. Apparently now we can support them for their music taste, dance productions, and video skills too! Certainly everyone needs to take a break, so it's actually great to see these videos with our military chilling out and doing their own version of some pop music. I've put links below to YouTube videos that I thought were hilarious and worth sharing. The first one is by members of the US Air Force Academy doing Ke$sha's "Tik Tok," which is followed by her actual video. The second is by US soldiers in Afghanistan doing Lady Gaga's "Telephone," followed by her actual video with Beyonce. That video, by the way, is great as a movie unto itself. Of course, the thing I find most amusing about all this is...people are concerned gays in the military??? Uhm, apparently their presence makes life a lot more enjoyable for our boys.
