The United States military blesses us once again with pop

In addition to being the shockingest, aweingest bunch of blower-uppers in the world, the United States military is also comprised of pop fans with all kinds of free time and audiovisual equipment, as evidenced by the Afghanistan-stationed troops' remake of Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video and now, a Ke$ha interpretation. Oh, yes, friends, I speak the truth to you.

Let the U.S. Air Force teeth-brushing with a bottle of Jack begin:

The "swagger" walk at 1:39 is pretty priceless. But I ask: why are guys so adorable and hilarious when taking these songs pseudo-seriously? There's something here about the unexpected, and sex stereotypes, and yadda-yadda-yadda-gender-whatnot, but it's also kind of refreshing to see our military personnel as pop-consuming people rather than desert-stationed, gun-wielding fighting machines.

Or, if you just like seeing hot boys sing pop songs, enjoy my favorite video ever, this "Party in the USA" excellence:

When they ripped their shirts off, I got goosebumps. Are they super-cute, or am I just ovulating or something? I didn't know I was a sucker for a man in uniform.
