At first, I wasn’t really interested in watching this video. Personally, I have to be in the mood to watch Weird Al Yankovic, otherwise he can be just plain annoying. With that said, I was pleasantly surprised by the “Perform This Way” video and felt like he did a great job with parodying Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” song. He certainly had his work cut out for him, making fun of Lady Gaga in such a way that hasn’t been done before.
In the video, he comes up with many of his own interpretations of things he felt Gaga would do. Some of these include: wearing swiss cheese, wearing an outfit covered in bees, or wrapping her intestines around the neck like a scarf. Of course the video has some familiarity with Gaga’s infamous bubble dress and meat dress, as well as the constant accusations she receives about copying Madonna.
