Intriguing video of the Day: 'Bad Romance' with American Sign Language (ASL)

This isn't really a dance video, but I find the incorporation of American Sign Language with some basic dance moves pretty compelling. This is from the 50Hearts Youtube Channel. A few questions for readers: Do you think this is disrespectful to ASL users (an opinion expressed by some Youtube commenters)? If not, what other songs do you think would benefit from similar treatment? Would it be totally gauche for America's Best Dance Crew to have a show devoted to dealing with disability (deafness, wheelchair bound people. etc)?
