Royal Wedding: Lady Gaga's Bad Romance gets a royal (video) remix

Royal Wedding: Kate Middleton and Prince William get a royal parody by The Other Guys, an a cappella group at St. Andrews University. See why their YouTube video has gone viral.

Prince William and Kate Middleton already have two choirs, an orchestra and two fanfare teams confirmed for their April 29 nuptials.

But in an age when nothing carries the imprimatur of fame until it goes viral on YouTube, perhaps the pair should consider adding a cameo from The Other Guys?

The Other Guys, an a capella group comprised of students from St. Andrews University, where William and Kate met, have filmed a rather clever video of their remix of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.”

The remix, called, “Royal Romance,” chronicles the age-old dilemma of fancying a woman who is also fancied by the King, or in this case, The Prince.

The video, filmed in part at St. Andrews University, features members of the group chasing around a very good Kate Middleton look-alike in an attempt to woo her affections away from the future king.

I want your loving just get rid of the prince, you and me could write a bad romance,” are just a sampling of the amusing lyrics. But behind the witty lyrics and the parody of the wedding of the year, is a talented group of young men whose singing and video are more impressive than a lot of the byproducts of the royal wedding.

In fact, The Other Guys are technically not a byproduct, though their video parody of Kate and William’s romance at St. Andrews has thrown them into the spotlight.

The Other Guys were founded in 2004 and have recorded both live and studio albums according to their Facebook page. The band has promised to donate a large portion of their proceeds to the Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton Charitable Gift Fund.

And since there’s certainly no shortage of formality in store for the April 29th wedding – surely a performance by a Scottish a cappella group who dance like Lady Gaga and musically urge Kate to dump the prince and sit on their throne would be appreciated by all?
