Every now and again, we get a super fun and interesting pop-music video that also happens to be in support of a super catchy song. Katy Perry’s new video for her latest single, “Birthday” is just that!

She previously released a lyric video for the song which showed lyrics displayed all over a range of different cakes. This eight-minute visual takes the birthday theme to the next level as the singer disguises herself as a range of made-up characters and crashes people’s birthday parties. This will be fun, right?

In each case, she dresses up as some sort of birthday entertainer with very convincing make-up and cosmetics to hide her true identity. In one scenario, she is disguised as a face-painting princess at a children’s party who is doing a noticeably bad job. She whips off her wig and reveals herself to the children who understandably shocked and thrilled.

The song follows previous hit singles, “Roar”, “Unconditionally” and “Dark Horse” which are all from her latest album, Prism. The ‘Prismatic World Tour’ kicks off in Belfast on May 7.

Even if you don’t like the song, check out the video below because it’s actually pretty funny.
