Lady Gaga Calls Press Conference to Show off Her Helicopter Dress

In an apparent attempt to beat crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford in the “November’s Most Awkward Press Conference” competition, human sociology experiment Lady Gaga gave the world an answer to a question no one ever thought to ask: “What would a helicopter dress look like?

We’d like to say she entered the conference in “Volantis”, which is clearly not named after a city in Game of Thrones because Gaga is too busy staring into Marina Abramovic‘s eyes and recovering from her marijuana addiction to bother with such pedestrian entertainments as television. But this was really more like she gave a brief speech before entering the “flying dress”, hovering around for a moment, and coming back to earth with a thud.

We prefer Kenny Powers’ water-powered jet pack, but based on Gaga’s reaction at 0:47, we’d say she was pretty impressed.

We hear she has some kind of product to promote, but we were too distracted by her flying machine and her amazingly insightful quotes to care:

“I wanted to make today about something even more important to me, and that something is the youth of the world. Their minds are just so boundless. They’re just so inspiring.”

Aren’t they, though?
