Bobby Gaga: ‘Poker Face’ (Chinese New Year Version)

Well…Chinese New Year is almost here, and what better to celebrate than with wealth, fame and glamour. In this Malaysian boy’s cover of Lady Gaga’s hit song “Poker Face“, we can already get a sense of what Chinese New Year is all about – money, money, and more money. I mean, how can you not make a fortune with those sweet “發” [fa, “get rich”] shades?
