Germanesque techno hit for Lady Gaga, utilizing her name as a Teutonic chant, in which she is abducted from a surreal bath-house by costumed otherworldly supermodels, and auctioned off into slavery, before getting a fiery revenge.
The video was filmed inside John Schneider's house in Agoura Hills, California. "That added a special spirit to the piece. He's got a pretty wicked house with all this classic The Dukes of Hazzard (1979) stuff up on the walls. John and his family were away for the weekend, thankfully, 'cause the house really did look trashed when we were shooting. We had a great art department who cleaned it up though and made it look brand-new," said director Marc Klasfeld. See more »
Katy Perry is an utter delight in this exceptionally hilarious, brilliant video. With the charisma and charm that has made her one of the most dynamic concert performer of our time, Perry sets the screen on fire with her talent and brilliance. Cleverly produced, beautifully realized, and stunningly choreographed scenes follow one another like bolts of lightning as she sings and dances her way into our hearts. Her character in this video is arguably the most original and fresh teenage persona's ever created for any medium, bringing the spirit and fun of our young people to vivid life. Surprise cameos by some very familiar faces just add to the hilarity and inspired originality of the proceedings. A tremendously spectacular musical extravaganza that defines the modern state of the rock video and which is sure to be a worldwide super hit for generations to come.
