For a whole day back in April, it looked like Lady Gaga wasn't going to sign off on Weird Al doing a parody of "Born This Way." Luckily she ended up changing her mind, so America's No. 1 non-Internet-related musical satirist could create "Perform This Way," a highly disturbing video in which Weird Al -- a grown man -- has his face CGI'd onto a young woman's body while he/she/it prances in a number of disturbing outfits.
It might not sound that scary, but it really is.
Sometimes you really just have to let videos speak for themselves, even if they are monstrous and horrifying and are going to give you nightmares for like, a week.
