Weird Al Has New Album, Disconcertingly Nice Breasts

Never thought we’d live to write this sentence, but Weird Al Yankovic somehow had us questioning our sexuality after watching the early moments of his new music video. And apparently we weren’t the only ones. The YouTube comment section for Al’s new Lady Gaga parody Perform This Way is loaded with guilt-ridden confessions of uncomfortable sexual arousal. The first few shots are especially disconcerting, before you can really process all the strange and wonderful CGI being employed.

Nice work Al. Please never do this again.

Lady Gaga, incidentally, was not too thrilled with the song and initially tried to block its release. But thanks to a Twitter campaign by Al’s fans, she eventually relented. “Twitter saved my album,” Yankovic told Wired.com. “It was just an amazing turn of events…. The by-product was that people found I was doing the song and doing an album.”
