A video of the Hunan (湖南) provincial TV station’s Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节) gala featured  a team of retired officials covering Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” In China, singing and dancing groups formed by former government officials are the norm.

However, this video, with the enthusiastic singers and currently shared on You Tube, has been viewed more than 850,000 times. A blogger has even translated their lyrics into English.

A copy video that can be played easily on the mainland can be found on Tudou, the video sharing site.

Western net users, by and large, consider this video to be funny. What do you think?
