"Weird Al" Yankovic has gone gaga.

The song parody king, who's hilariously -- and fondly -- mocked everyone from Madonna to Michael Jackson with his comedic versions of top hits, is gaining buzz for his interpretation of Gaga's latest hit Born This Way -- or as he calls it, Perform This Way.

Early Tuesday, Yankovic's YouTube video of Perform This Way had nearly 3 million views, while his name was a trending Twitter topic.

Fun fact: Weird Al’s breakout hit was Eat It (a parody of Jackson’s Beat It) which hit 12th on the Billboard charts in April 1984 -- just less than two years before Gaga was born in March 1986.

The funnyman's new album Alpocolypse is in stores now.
