‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Parodies Lady Gaga in ‘Perform This Way’

Parody king sends up Gaga’s outlandish style

"Weird Al" Yankovic's parody of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" got off to a rocky start when her team initially declined permission for him to goof on her inspirational hit, but now that the matter is settled and the video is finally here, it's clear that the hassle was worth it. The video for "Perform This Way" has Yankovic dressed up in Gaga drag and cycling through variations on some of her most famous looks, plus a few nutty original concepts that Gaga may want to try out at some point. The porcupine hat and the dress made of live bees are particularly inspired.
