His head is superimposed on a woman’s body as he pokes fun at Gaga various fashion styles, including her famous meat dress. The video is very funny and a bit creepy.

Relax Monsters, Lady Gaga approved of the Weird Al parody. Gaga declared having Weird Al perform a parody a "rite of passage".

You can download Perform This Way song and video on iTunes. All proceeds from the song and video sales go to the Human Rights Campaign.

When Gaga gave her approval for the parody, Weird Al said, “I truly respect and admire Gaga as an artist and it pained me to think of her as having less than a great sense of humor...”

Perform This Way is the first video Weird Al has directed since “White & Nerdy”.

If you are curious, Weird Al’s body in Perform This Way is really a woman named Vlada Gorbaneva’s body. Weird Al thanked Gorbaneva on his blog.

You can see a photo of Vlada Gorbaneva on Facebook. She's gorgeous.
