Bizarre Chinese Old-folks Choir Covers Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance"

The most bizarre cover I've ever seen. On China's most popular satellite channel Hunan TV, playing to an audience of hundreds of millions of Chinese people worldwide, a group of retired senior citizens (over)cheerfully beat out a version of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" in Changsha's local dialect, accompanied by miniskirted Chinese musicians playing glass traditional Chinese instruments.


  1. Thanks for all this information. But if you think this version of Gaga is weird, how about this version of The Who's My Generation?

  2. It's not bizarre, it's actually FABULOUS. It's catchy and attention getting. It's also a representation of the attempt to bridge the gap between elders and the youth in China which is a serious problem in Chinese society.
