    I thought it was some guy doing a parody for youtube with his family, but it actually was a play? in School? Huh? That's money well spent on a child's education. Wow! Are my tax dollars going to this?? With all the good teacher's getting laid off, how did this one keep their job?

    Was it a Rielle Hunter/John Edwards production?

    Jonas Åkerlund. Lady Gaga. Telephone. This is the raddest fudging thing you motherfudgers ever posted on this motherfudging bacon bee of a blog.

  18. Luke Ryan says:

    Andrew Foster (of He-Wolf fame)?

    You know, if you ignore Åkerlund, he'll eventually go away.

  22. Tim says:

    Will the real Geoff Boucher please stand up (and delete or confirm that comment from the fake geoff boucher)?

  23. oakmonster says:

    Best. School play. EVER!

  24. Emily says:

    As a parent of a preschooler starting to crave guns and violence, this is an absolute nightmare. The hardest part was watching the adult push the final gunman out onto the stage — what was she thinking!? Unless this was shot in someone's private residence, the whole lot should be fired and the "school" shut down. The cheering parent at the end yelling "Yeah!" should go with them. Just horrible.

    amerika= sick

  27. Steph says:

    It's the guy that produced the school children singing about Obama that was supposed to be "grassroots" but was produced by a bunch of Hollywood people.

  28. Bruce says:

    It's not a real school play; it's by director Marc Klasfeld, who directed the Lady Gaga video "Pokerface". Very convincing, though.

  29. W.Shakespeare says:

    Emily's right, kids in school should stick to non-violent, wholesome plays like MacBeth and Oedipus Rex.

  30. Cal Godot says:

    The irony is, I didn't even know who Lady Gaga was until about 3 weeks ago, when someone, astounded that I had not heard of the performer, showed me the Telephone video. My answer is based on the "guess" that nothing could have caused more of a stir that that.
    Well, until this: the Scarface play is surely bringing out the faux-outrage among humorless parents. My favorites are the ones calling for the parents of these children to be "shot" for "encouraging violence," or fired from their jobs [i.e. economic violence] and humiliated in public [social violence]. It seems that many people grow up and forget the difference between "real" and "pretend."

  31. West-O says:

    People really think this video is legit? Did you read the story?

  32. West-O says:

    Marc Klasfeld and Rockhard Films are behind this. they did the Pokerface video for Lady Gaga (which I think someone guest already).

  33. sglick says:

    Is it video music director Marc Klasfeld and production outfit Rockhard Films who did videos for artists such as Lady Gaga's "Pokerface" and Adam Lambert's "For Your Entertainment'?

  34. JK says:

    How could anyone watch this and think it's real?? Are your snark radars busted? This was done as a joke and it was meant to go viral (mission accomplished).
    Common sense should tell you that:
    – NO school in the right mind would put this on stage
    – The video, despite it's low-fi appearance, is too well made to have been a parent or school recording
    – The audience doesn't laugh once. Any parent who had allowed their kid to be in this would have been laughing their asses off the whole time ( I know I would have been). So it's clearly STAGED.

  35. LoveThatGoesToWaste says:

    Jonas Åkerlund, director of Lady Gaga's Telephone music video?
    That's what I've been hearing.

  36. Emily says:

    Real or not, it still involved real kids, with real brains and real impressions. In a sense this glorifies the entire melodrama that is Scarface, and makes it far more appealing to them than MacBeth or Oedipus Rex. Sorry Shakespeare.
