Quite the unexpected party guest, pop singer Katy Perry recently crashed five different birthday parties disguised as one of these ‘world’s worst birthday entertainers’—a washed up Vegas dancer past her prime, a drunk clown with few kid-pleasing talents—for her new music video “Birthday.” The party planners of the birthday parties Perry attended were conned into thinking they were participating in a reality TV show called ‘Birthday Blowout,’ where anything could go. Perry only revealed her identity at one of the parties, never letting on at the others.
To support the video, Canadian director and photographer Ryan Enn Hughes shot this series of animated gif portraits of Perry in disguise using a Canon EOS 1DC camera. There’s no denying these are a little creepy, but Hughes did a stellar job of bringing these quirky characters to life.
