In more music news, CNN is reporting that this week at a GOP conference meeting, Republicans were shown the following clip of a video parody:
The video, created by Peter Cowman, a recent University of Washington grad, replaces the words in the Lady Gaga hit “Just Dance” – the refrain has been changed to “Just Tax.”
Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA) showed the video in an effort to encourage his colleagues “to get young people involved using new media,” noting that his district is home to a cluster of technology companies.
Reichert’s colleague, Mike Pence (R-IN) admitted: “that very few members were familiar with the original Lady Gaga song.” I’m shocked!
And yes, my dad is scratching his head at this one. Dad, Lady Gaga is techno – or as we like to say at home, “post-1812.”
