This (http://mobile.findtechnologynews.com/2011/05/27/hp-uses-lady-gaga-lookalikes-to-give-away-free-veer-4gs-to-subway-riders/) story came off as really weird to me, and since it involves Lady Gaga in some form, I thought I'd share it here. :) They' were all Lady GaGa lookalikes by the way, do not get confused! :p

On Monday HP sent a collection of Lady GaGa lookalikes to hand out the HP Veer 4G to Subway riders. The lookalikes were there not only to hand out free Veers, but to advertise GaGa’s new “Born This Way” album which you’ll remember as the album that brought Amazon’s servers to their knees on the same day. The Subway trains where the phones were given out were covered with advertisements for both the phone and the new album.

I'm jealous. It's not everyday that you go in a subway and you get Lady Gaga to give you a band new smartphone while she dances in front of you lol :p

Probably the most misleading article I've ever read, Lady GaGa wasn't even involved in person by the sound of things!

Yes, HP is promoting it with Lady Gaga's advertising help. It's the smallest smartphone in the world as far as I understand.

Those people look terrified, then again I'd be scared also if someone looking like Gaga was in front of me o.o

Holy Mother of bad cosplay! Help us in these times of plague. >':
The subway itself is still pretty bitchin' though. I'd love to take a ride on it. ;D

Why wasn't this just included in her own thread? Was it really necessary to create yet another Gaga thread?

since when does bleaching your eye brows & hair, and wearing excessively dark makeup make you "born this way?"

That's make up. BAD makeup.

I think if she had really thought this through she would've gone for a more natural look. Minimal or no make up, no hair dye, no gimmicks.

The stick ons, the makeup the surreal look of it all...it makes something that could've been meaningful into a big joke.

OMG, GAGA again

This is Society at its EPIC FAIL

With respect to fans, but why on Earth would someone have to wear bras to promote this;
I mean what's the point, REALLY?

Everything GAGA does absolutely has nothing that even coincides with her BORN THIS WAY :hea:


wow give away the phone in order to promote it. I want range-rover company to promote its cars :D.

:vlol: Yes,this plz

I went last week to see if can buy one.... :pi:

Well, yes I can't buy it, so :P

I thought mostly everyone in this forum liked Lady Gaga, thus I posted this as I thought you guys would find it amusing like I did. I didn't realize there's such a huge debate about her going on lol. :) Anyways, the thread isn't exactly about Lady Gaga, it's mainly about HP using her to sell their products...I guess, so it involves her...just not entirely. :D

It clearly states it's not the real Lady Gaga.
