Katy Perry Summons A New Era In ‘Dark Horse’ Video! Watch Now:

February 26, 2014


In Memphis, Egypt, a really… really long time ago, there ruled an Empress named Katy Perry. In some sort of a tyranny, she awaited on her throne for something or someone that would please her.

Perry throws some moves with this latest music video to the 2 Chainz assisted track “Dark Horse” and makes it even more eccentric than most of her other visuals. The colours are popping, the wardrobe is out of control and Katy even does the bounce to the addictive beat of this track.


As her first suitor approaches her, he’s covered in jewellery in which he hopes to persuade her with, in including a giant diamond rock. Unfortunate for the man, she favours the sparkle over his presence so a quick zap from her majesties thrown and he turns into dust; leaving only the jewels for Katy’s amusement.

Comes her next suitor, a heavy man bearing gifts in the form of sweets. Anything from twinkles to gummy candy is provided, but Katy’s eye catches the hot cheetos! After giving a taste and finding them too hot, she requests water from her suitor. When he comes up empty handed, she does the only acceptable thing… zaps him into dust only to created a giant glass of water.


As the next victims approaches, 2 Chainz chimes in for her verse. We see an Egyptian cart roll up all done-up with rims and hydraulics bouncing towards the Empress. Of course, Katy see’s no use in the gift bearer so it’s only natural she zaps him instantly into a handy dandy set of fuzzy dice for her chariot (we probably would have done the same).

The next couple suitors aren’t really given much opportunity as they’re turned into alligator purses and puppies.

So here we have it, after her numerous failed attempts at finding her match she’s left with gold, sweets, pets and a pyramid. Not bad!

“Dark Horse” is currently spending its fourth week atop the Hot 100 chart, grazing out Pharrell’s “Happy.” It is also her 9th No. 1 hit, and the second off her album PRISM¬†following the success of “Roar.”

If you enjoyed this video, it won’t be any competition to her upcoming world tour. The Prismatic World Tour is set to kick off in Ireland and stretch out through USA, Canada, all the through to finish off down under in Australia the end of november. A portion of the money collected during the second leg will also be going to UNICEF Austism Speaks, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.¬†
