Weird Al Wears Meat Dress in Teaser Video for Gaga Parody ‘Perform This Way’

This is going to be good! “Weird Al” Yankovic has released a 30-second teaser from the music video for his Lady Gaga spoof ‘Perform This Way,’ and it features the parodist wearing a meat dress, a gold straitjacket and other items seemingly plucked from the closet of the ‘Born This Way’ singer.

The video utilizes extensive digital manipulation that puts Yankovic’s head on the body of a female dancer with a rocking bikini body that resembles Gaga’s. He balances a porcupine on his head and wears a replication of Gaga’s infamous meat dress as he sings, “I’ll strap prime rib to my feet, cover myself with raw meat / I’ll bet you’ve never seen a skirt steak worn this way.

The biggest zinger comes when a Madonna lookalike pops up just before the chorus and says, “Express yourself!,” a reference to the fact that many believe ‘Born This Way’ sounds too much like that classic Madonna single.

‘Perform This Way’ almost didn’t happen, because Gaga’s manager initially denied Yankovic permission to record the song. Thank goodness they worked it out, because this video is looking like one of the funniest clips we’ve seen in some time.

The full video is set to debut on Monday, June 20. ‘Perform This Way’ is the lead single from the Weird Al’s 13th album, ‘Alpocalypse,’ which also features parodies of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, T.I., B.o.B and Bruno Mars. The album hits retailers next Tuesday, and we’ve already got a song-by-song review.
