Ever since becoming one of the 3.5 million people to view Pomplamoose’s jazzy twee version of Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” last year, I’ve been glued to the Northern California duo’s YouTube channel. Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn have yet to stumble in their ongoing cover song series in which they’ve taken on the likes of Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind & Fire, Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson,” and many more. (Conte has even pulled off Radiohead’s “National Anthem” while wearing pajama pants. Pretty twee, right?) I swear if Pomplamoose ever collaborates with the PS22 kids, then never mind the anti-aging cream — you’ll look and feel years younger.
Now they’ve responded to Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s insane “Telephone” video by making the song 10,000 times more listenable. Not to mention this version features “Shameless Product Placement” brand bottled water FTW.
