Video by jfcoburn2010

In this video, Josephine Coburn, a freshman from from UC Berkeley, takes on the Lady Gaga song "Telephone" and transforms it to a pop-infused lesson on genetics. As Lady Gallium, she sings to her boyfriend: "I have got no time for talking, baby can't you see, I am trying to study some biochemistry."
