Katy Perry's "This Is How We Do" Video Is a Pop-Art Spectacular

by Justin Moran

Katy Perry's new video for the Prism standout, "This Is How We Do," is an amazingly campy collection of pop art references, retro fashion statements and summer staples like twerking ice cream cones, a group of sharp men dressed like Pee-Wee Herman and a very important pizza-printed bathing suit -- only the essentials for Ms. Perry. Complete with a spot-on Mariah Carey impersonator and a shot of Aretha Franklin framed on the wall, this Joel Kefali-directed clip is Perry at her finest -- tongue-in-cheek and effervescently technicolor. Keep an eye out for "Dark Horse" co-writer Sarah Hudson and "Prismatic Tour" opener Ferras -- as showy as Perry comes across, she's also refreshingly genuine when it comes to supporting her friends.
