Perform This Way parodies Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and features Al's head superimposed on the bodies of dancer Vlada Gorbaneva and contortionist Marissa Heart using CGI effects. Throughout the video, "Yankovic" dances in several different outlandish outfits.
“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
