The music video for Weird Al Yankovic's much-discussed Lady Gaga parody "Perform This Way" has arrived, and it's as outlandish as you'd expect.
True to form, the lyrics are hilarious and the visuals play off them well, but Lady Gaga provided a unique challenge as far as Al spoof targets go.
In order to skewer someone as bombastic as Lady Gaga (this is a woman who wears outfits like these), a parody has to be REALLY out there!
Does Weird Al's head superimposed on a hot chick's body qualify, with his geeky dome bobbing horribly (intentionally) out of sync? We'd say so.
Weird Al, ironically, has made a career out of this nonsense ... and outlasted the careers of many of the people he's lampooned in this fashion.
Gaga doesn't appear to be a flash in the plan, but if she knows what's good for her, she'll adopt Yankovic's look in a future video of her own.
How awesome would that be to bring it full circle.
