Are you caught in a bad project?
It seems a lot of people are. A Lady Gaga music video parody by Texas medical students about tedious lab work has caught fire on YouTube, getting more than 2.5 million hits so far.
The parody by students at the Baylor College of Medicine is called “Zheng Lab-Bad Project” and is a spoof on the Lady Gaga megahit “Bad Romance.”
“I want good data/A paper in Cell/but I got a project straight from hell,” sings Mary Wiese, a post-doc with Baylor's Huffington Center on Aging and now probably better known as a Lady Gaga impersonator.
In the video (viewable at bit.ly/gKTPka), Wiese wears a blond wig and is at times dressed in a corset and tutu fashioned in part with biohazard plastic bags. Her backup dancers are clad in lab coats and protective gear.
