This video remake of Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video was reportedly filmed at a FOB in Farah Province, Afghanistan by Army troops assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division. According to The Smoking Gun, the video was choreographed by Aaron Melcher, a 24-year-old married soldier from North Carolina. At the very least, this performance makes things a bit more difficult for senior officers charged with enforcing the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

If anyone's wondering if the video might be some kind of hoax, these photos at TSG make a pretty compelling case that the whole thing's for real.

UPDATE: The Fayetteville Observer talks to Sgt. Melcher's wife.
