“Applause” is an alright song – it’s not my favorite of Lady Gaga’s compositions but it is far from her worst – but it’s music video is something else. Filled with the usual A, B, C, D, etc. stories that have run through a few of Lady Gaga’s videos, this one has quite a lot going on.

Things to watch for? Well, there’s a brief moment of shrinking, and an extended fusion of female and fowl.
