Katy Perry got us warmed up with the neon '80s-flavored lyric video for her ode to California-living, "This Is How We Do," but we still weren't ready for this. The wild clip above is almost OK Go-level ambitious (almost), employing bizarre sets, unique costumery, and a whole lot of color to bring the bouncy single to life. For her part, the Prism pop star often positions herself as a piece of art (Mondrian is the most obvious reference), but there are also parts where she eats popsicles, dons pepperoni pizza swimwear, and gets her nails did, um, "Japanese-y." Perhaps best of all, though, is the fact that she's almost constantly followed and tended to by a gang of stylish, dancing Pee-Wee Hermans. Because ... well, why not? Joel Kefali directs.
