Lady Gaga does the Revolution pretty well, actually

You have to check out the spoof Lady Gaga music video on the French Revolution! It is actually not too bad. Well it is not too bad, apart from the grating music, the annoying graphics, and the cavorting girlie girl who dances through the events. Although vastly oversimplified, the facts are not inaccurate.
I could not figure this out… how, or more precisely why would such an air-head media creature bother to make what appears to be a rather pedagogically useful rendition of the facts? The answer is simple. She didn’t! The video is the work of Hawaii educators Amy Burvall and Herb Mahelona, and it is one of dozens of history-themed videos the duo, under the name “history teachers,” has posted on the website YouTube.com. Read the story in the Honolulu Star Advertiser. Good job, history teachers!
