Weird Al Debuts His Video For the Lady Gaga Parody ‘Perform This Way’
Weird Al Yankovic’s new album, Alpocalypse, drops tomorrow, complete with his parody of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” that caused a minor uproar when it was first released to the internet. Originally, the report was that Lady Gaga was not going to allow Weird Al to release the song for sale, despite the fact that all profits from the single and the music video would go towards the Human Rights Campaign.
Except apparently that was a mix-up and Lady Gaga didn’t really say that (or she did some impressive back pedaling once the internet blew up wondering where her sense of humor was) and not only was the single released, but Weird Al has created a music video that is potentially the stuff of nightmares. It features his head CGI’d (badly) onto the body of a Lady Gaga impersonator. Cameos by a Madonna impersonator and singing porcupine also occur. Check it out:

But first: What do you think of the “Perform This Way” video?
