New Tarantino-Inspired Lady Gaga Video Gets Half a Million Views in 12 Hours
If you haven't seen Lady Gaga's epic new video for her single "Telephone" (featuring Beyoncé), you're not too late, but you won't be one of the first half-million people to see it. To do that, you'd have had to see it between 11:30 p.m. EST last night (March 11) and about noon today (March 12).

The video, which is a whopping nine minutes long, follows Gaga's incarceration and stay at a nearly nude all-female prison until she's bailed out by Beyoncé, then they poison almost everyone except their backup dancers at a greasy spoon diner.

The Jonas Aklerlund-directed video is Tarantino-esque in a number of ways, not least of which being that it features a cameo from Quentin's "Pussy Wagon," from Kill Bill. According to Gigwise, Gaga has also admitted the similarities.

You can watch the epic video below. When it comes to acting, Beyoncé's no De Niro, but Lady Gaga makes her look like an Oscar winner by comparison.
