  1. Um. I am not one of those people who cries from happiness.. BUT I AM NOW. Not really. but if I could, this is the only moment so far in my life that’s worth it.

    Also, Emily’s comment is the best thing I’ve read all month!

    • TESS!! omg all the love for this ridiculous thing that Stef and I did this afternoon was overwhelming enough without Tess showing up from the depths of the internet shadows to comment for only the SECOND TIME EVER. Y’all make my life complete. As well as Stef’s ukelele skills.

  2. The Bad Romance dance is revolutionary, but impossible, and as much as I have tried to work it out, it just never happened. So OMG I can’t believe you actually did it! in earnest, congrats!!

  3. I tried watching this the other day but my internet was not cooperating… and finally watched it. I really have nothing clever to say just that you guys are amazing and i love this so much hahah and it totally completely made my weekend… now…there must be follow ups


    this video inspired me to make my own adaptation of bad romance on the uke and YES, I PLAYED IT IN MY HIGH SCHOOL HABITAT FOR HUMANITY BENEFIT CONCERT. my friend and i did it and it was super hot (my dad called it “witty”) and we had backup dancers and two-part harmonies.

    that is all.

    thank you autostraddle.
