Christian Bale + GaGa?
That’s right people. Christian Bale dancing to Lady GaGa’s “Bad Romance.” I doubt I could think of a better post for Crossroads.
Are you unfamiliar with my Crossroads category? They are easy to miss. It’s only once in a blue moon I come across something that is so perfect for what Crossroads is meant to convey…a true marriage of two random entertainers or groups who have little in common, coming together in a moment of pop culture goodness. (See here and here.)
And now we can add this to the list:
When IHGB readers Megan and Betsy both sent me the link, I knew that this category had to been taken to a new level. Not that I’m a huge follower of GaGa, but it TOTALLY WORKS in this clip. And everyone knows you can always count on me to fully support any and all things Newsies and Christian Bale. (See here.)
In case you have no idea what I’m talking about in regards to Newsies
a.) I feel sorry for you and
b.) I give you this original rendition:
Oh 1992. Why were you so good to me?
I honestly don’t know how we are going to be able to top this one in the future. Crossroads may have seen it’s last post. Feel free to prove me wrong and send in your Crossroads considerations.
Until then, I’m going to be watching Bale again and that adorable guy who looks like AC Slater.
Oh Lincee! If it wasn’t for several states separating us, I’m pretty sure we’d be BFFs. While I do prefer the original rendition, I have to agree this is brilliant. Yay Newsies (and Christian Bale)!!!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
That was priceless. And made my day. Possibly my week. Beautiful work…
Oh my goodness…I used to rewind that song over and over! Yes, rewind on my vhs! I loved the Newsies! I am annoying my husband right now because I am breaking out in song to “Seize the Day”!! Wow- thanks for the memory! Haven’t thought of that in so long! :0)
You gotta love Patrick Bateman back in his youth. Anybody here ever see him in the WW2 epic “Empire of the Sun”?
As for Gaga – I am so in love. I haven’t crushed for a chick this bad since Jennifer Grey. And before you draw the obvious conclusions I confess: Panda’s got a thang for chicks wth big noses.
i have been watching this all week! and humming snippets of Gaga and Seize the Day in my cubicle…
also, every time i watch this number, i remember my 12 year old self being completely mesmerized by the pelvic thrust they do when dancing…
yeah. whole bunch of first celebrity crushes wrapped up in this movie 🙂
also – that adorable Slater look-a-like? Mush. He was my favorite. 🙂
Do yourself a favor though. DO NOT look up what these guys look like now. DO NOT DO IT. Except Christian Bale, he’s still hot.
excuse me, i have to watch this video a few more times…
Okay-Newsies is my FAVORITE movie! That was great! The AC Slater look-alike is Aaron Lohr. He was my favorite character! 🙂
Oh. my. word. Newsies has been my favorite movie since the day I saw it…mainly because of my major crush on Christian Bale! Every time I see that man, I go weak in the knees! Doesn’t matter what he’s in…my heart flutters and I automatically love the movie! Ohhhh, Newsies.
I love musicals…how did I miss this movie? I have to rent it some where! Thank you Lincee, as usual you brighten my day!
Love Love Love the Newsies and started loving Christian Bale the first time I saw that movie way back when! I did also love how the Gaga song worked with the Newsies dance – awesomeness!
There are no words. As an avid Newsies fan, thank you for the Crossroads AND reminding me just how fabulous Newsies truly is. They don’t make ’em like they used to!
Holy crap! This is pure awesomeness.
Newsies dancing to Bad Romance – amazing!! Productivity will be low today – between the World Cup kicking off and the Newsies video, how can Excel spreadsheets compete?!?
Thank you for posting this and making my day. Wonderful. My 12 year old self thanks you.
