The nine-and-a-half-minute video for Lady GaGa and Beyoncé's smash hit, "Telephone," premiered Thursday.
The video, which plays more like a short film, depicts Lady GaGa as an incarcerated bad girl, awaiting to be bailed out by her partner in crime Beyoncé. The video is said to be a continuation of GaGa's previous hit video for "Paparazzi," in which she kills her boyfriend.
The video continues as Beyoncé picks GaGa up from prison and takes her to a diner where she proceeds to kill Beyoncé's boyfriend with poisoned honey.
MTV.com made a "pop culture cheat-sheet," and called the video an all-you-can-eat buffet for those hungry for pop culture.
The video is a buffet indeed, featuring a slew of recognizable icons. To name a few, the bright red and yellow pick-up truck driven by the lead character in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films as the dynamic duo's get-away car, the "Vogue"-esque dance routine in the jail cell emulating early the early Madonna video, the "Pulp Fiction" inspired diner where GaGa kills a restaurant full of people and proceeds to dance and finally a leopard skin outfit worn by GaGa at the end of the video to resemble Shania Twain in her "That Don't Impress Me Much" clip.
The video is near 14.5 million views on YouTube.com since its premiere.
