Lady Gaga, Beyonce -- some guys are on the 'Telephone' for you from Afghanistan

We walk among you. We sit at the next cubicle over. We are the fans of music videos shot by U.S. troops deployed overseas.

If you have not yet dabbled in this multimedia subcategory, we urge you to watch the remake of "Telephone" above, produced by U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. (In particular, check out the costumes in the big dance number starting around 1:37, and don't miss the closing stills.)

Like this one? No time like the present to tour the classics. We recommend starting with "Barbie Girl," "The Ding Dong Song" and "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" out of Iraq.

Lady Gaga and Beyonce, it seems you have a little competition in the fierceness department. Possibly in the "I wear yellow caution tape" department as well.

Hat tip to Gawker and Mediaite for the "Telephone" heads up. The rest of the videos? Well -- like I said, we walk among you.
