No Joke: Weird Al Parodies Lady Gaga, Proceeds Go to Charity

There was a question as to whether it would ever see the light of day, but it’s finally here: the spoof video “Perform This Way” from Weird Al Yankovic, parodying Lady Gaga‘s “Born This Way.” And it takes the “Weird” in Weird Al to a whole new level.

The video features Al’s face (always done up in Gaga-esque makeup) superimposed on the body of a female dancer (who has pretty killer abs!). The resulting image is enough to either make you laugh or haunt your dreams. Or both.

The song itself pokes fun at Gaga’s outlandish style and performance art (or gimmicks) with lyrics like these: “I’m sure my critics will say/It’s a grotesque display/Well they can bite me, baby I perform this way/I could be wearing swiss cheese/Or maybe covered with bees/It doesn’t mean I’m crazy, I perform this way.”

Weird Al tends to ask for approval from artists before releasing parodies of their songs, and originally the word was that Gaga wanted the song to go away. But it was later revealed that Gaga’s management gave Al a no before Gaga was even asked about it, so Al went ahead with the video.

Here’s the best part: all proceeds from the video and the song, which you can download on iTunes for $1.29, will go toward the Human Rights Campaign. Weird Al tends to do this sort of crazy nice stuff, and he’s a vegetarian too, so he’s more than just a head of curly hair and a knack for ironically hilarious rhymes.

Check out the video below, but beware of the weirdness!

Protesting Kylie Jenner’s Use of Fur Doesn’t Help Animals

Campaigns against fur, whether that’s at the PETA level or a small mobbing like this, don’t work because they promote the use of other animal products.

Collaborating with animal exploiters won’t help animals

The two sides claim to both have the “health and well-being of animals” in mind in this partnership, but one likely said “after profitability” under their breath.

Exploitation for art is no worse than exploitation for dinner

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.
