Some medical school students in Houston used hazardous waste disposal bags and gaudy wigs in their costumed parody of the Lady Gaga hit "Bad Romance." The video called "Bad Project" shows the Baylor College of Medicine students dancing in labs, dreaming of good scientific data and complaining that "there ain't no getting out of here." The video has more than 2 million YouTube hits.

The Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday that the video was done for an upcoming school contest. A bad project can be anything from a worthless experiment to a study that drags on.

Associate dean Dr. Scott Basinger says the video shows that the students "are incredibly creative."

Gaga's song "Bad Romance" on Sunday won Grammys for best female pop vocal performance and best short form music video.
