A still from Gaga's 'Judas'

If late fashion designer Alexander McQueen directed a film inspired by Antonio Banderas' Desperado, Marlon Brando's 1953 classic The Wild One, and Mel Gibson's The Passion of Christ, it might look something like Lady Gaga's video for "Judas." Yes, it might be her weirdest yet.

The plot: Gaga falls for the leader of a biker gang, Jesus -- the guy in the corn rows and the golden crown of thorns -- and she also has a thing for one of his biker disciples, Judas. Juicy!

They race down the highway into a dusty town south of the border, where a choreographed dance sequence unfolds, complete with over-the-top costumes. There's washing of feet in a pool of holy water, some symbolism of a sacrifice, and a gold gun with a stick of lipstick attached to the barrel.

In other words, it's a Lady Gaga video.

Gaga's new album Born This Way drops May 23. Her Madison Square Garden concert airs on HBO Saturday, May 7, at 9 PM.
