Artist’s Take:

“It’s a challenge because she’s got so many different looks. I mean, she’s got such a bigger-than-life persona, so a big part of figuring out the video is figuring out how we’re going to do two-dozen costumes in three minutes. On top of putting my head on a woman’s body, that was difficult as well. So [making the video took] a lot of CG effects and wardrobe, basically.” – “Weird Al” Yankovic
