Why So Serious? Let 'Em See Your... Joker Face!

You know what's scarier than the Lady Gaga sex doll? The thought of Lady Gaga being somehow linked to Heath Ledger's Joker. So while the world impatiently for news regarding the third installment in Christopher Nolan's reboot of the Batman films, there's a couple of kids out there who decided to annoy the denizens of a shopping mall by dressing up in some rather impressive Joker and Harley Quinn costumes and re-enact that duo's bad romance... but set it to "Poker Face" by milady.

Now, the video is very amateur, but honestly, there's some kind of genius in its execution. Followers of the various Batman canons will feel right at home in the portrayals of DC's characters, and the looks on some of the normal folks' faces as the cast uses the escalators to film is utterly beyond price. And who knows? Maybe Nolan will notice, be inspired and we'll see Gaga don the red and black spandex when the last part of the trilogy hits theaters in 2012.

The video is actually a preview for a longer piece of work. Stay tuned.
