Weird Al does Lady Gaga: The ‘Perform This Way’ video

2 Comments

I heard about this earlier from a better-connected journalist, but I didn’t get a chance to post it until now.

Behold! Perform This Way by Weird Al Yankovic.

Here’s some background for the Little Monsters: Weird Al wanted to do include his parody of the Lady Gaga song Born This Way on his new album. There was a failure to communicate, and well, long story short, now there’s a new video going viral.

At the time of this writing, Perform This Way has 465,322. Trey Barrineau says when he broke the story Wednesday that the video had 300 views on YouTube.
