Lady Gaga - Spot the Product Placement

Lady Gaga's latest song Telephone (feat. Beyonce) has been matched with a video of epic proportions. Channelling Tarantino's Kill Bill saga Gaga goes for the ultra gloss pop art look; a satirical comment on the world as a consumerist society inundated by information and technology (which is also the main purveyor, obviously). The video is a comment on today's world; a world of instant gratification where we are constantly at reach and on call (via the telephone). 

It's all very clever really. The video comments on her apparent gender ambiguity (a rumour she started), has real porn star Alektra Blue, makes use of the 'pussy wagon' borrowed from the Kill Bill set, features her sister Natali Germanotta and uses the diner from US crime show NCIS. However, we do wonder what 'avant-garde' dribble Gaga’s gonna spit out to substantiate the ‘post-modern’ product pollination; a further comment on global conglomerates and the hypodermic needle

Now that would be a little to convenient, wouldn't it Gaga?

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.
