When Lady Gaga’s Jonas Akerlund-directed Telephone video premiered, the first shock wave was over the Beyonce‘s cameo in the Pussy Wagon. The second was over Gaga’s smoking cigarette sunglasses. And the third was over the duo killing EVERYBODY with poisoned diner food (remind me not to eat there).
But in hindsight, perhaps the most surprising aspect of the video was the lack of any actual telephones (aside from telephone hats and hairpieces, obvi) or storylines relating to the lyrics. Not that I’m complaining. I’m just sayin’.
So, for a more literal interpretation of the song, behold Andrew Kolb’s Telephone illustrations. See the rest of the pages are after the jump.
