Only Lady Gaga could get away with releasing a 30-second “trailer” for an advertisement… followed, one month later, by the full ad, which clocks in at an astonishing five minutes and 30 seconds. That’s 22 seconds longer than her “Bad Romance” video, though not nearly as lengthy as her epic “Telephone” mini-movie.
Anyway: The commercial – er, short film – starts with a title card that simply reads “WARNING” in bright red letters. After that, screaming and Phantom of the Opera-style organ chords lead us into a shot of a giant, golden Gaga statue, which lays in repose before an army of mostly naked dudes.
After that, things sort of go off the rails.
But why read a description of Gaga’s latest foray into video when you could just watch the darn thing yourself? Have at it, little monsters:
The return of those McQueen Alien shoes! The Prometheusian black goo creatures! All those defined pectorals! What’s your favorite part of the ad? And does watching it actually make you want to purchase Gaga’s fragrance?
