US Soldiers Remake Telephone

Troops stationed in Afghanistan make their own cover version of Lady Gaga's "Telephone". No kidding, it's the best video on the interwebs today.. tomorrow and yesterday

As described on
 Strapping soldiers in combat boots and fatigues clapping their hands and wiggling their hips in a meticulous recreation of Gaga's bizarre dance moves. This isn't the begrudging performance of a bunch of tough guys who lost a bet; these dudes are letting loose and having fun, and it is a lovely sight to see. My favorite moment comes at the 2:48 mark -- you just try not to smile at this man's jolly gyrations. My only complaint (purely in the interest of accurate artistic recreation): Fellas, where are the diamond-encrusted thongs?
As the video's description on YouTube says: "Prepare yourself for a fantastical journey."
