NPR “Spoofs” Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” Like A Bunch Of “Dorks”

I don’t know why this is called a “spoof”? It’s a lip-dub, kind of. Maybe an homage. But a spoof? They didn’t do a laboratory-themed cover of the song, or swede the video. They are just lip-synching and/or reciting her actual lyrics like a bunch of nerds. Hot Shots Part Deux is a spoof. Scary Movie 9 is a spoof. No. This is just a bunch of dorks being such dorks. Whatever. I’m mad at NPR today anyway. Rest your case, Nina Totenberg.
