Chinese Senior Citizens Cover Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance
No, I would not say I am a huge fan of Chinese television. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that it’s in a pretty terrible state. Having said that, Hunan TV changes the game for them. Maybe none of us had thought of it before, but thank g-d for them and their broadcast of Chinese senior citizens performing Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” in Changsha’s local dialect. They are joined by mini-skirted Chinese musicians playing glass traditional Chinese instruments.
Youtube user @julie123g writes that the lyrics can be translated to, “Dear son, you are so buy at work that you don’t visit us as often. You even sounds so busy when we are on the phone. We your parents have to find ways to entertain ourselves. Guess what, turn on your TV tonight and see us GaGa. If you like it, give us a standing ovation so we don’t get too nervous. If you love it, join us and sing with us. Now let your grandma (GaGa) show you something.” The best part? You can buy the LAO LAI QIAO Gaga T-shirts that have a picture of the cute Asian lady at 3:20 as well!
