Video: ‘Born This Way’ in the Key of Magneto

Shortly after the release of X-Men: First Class, YouTube user TheWarpZone wrote an absolutely hilarious X-Men themed parody of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” He also issued a challenge: If the video of him just playing the song on an acoustic guitar in his room got enough views, he’d make a full video for the song. Lo and behold, he has apparently received sufficient viewing figures, because earlier in the week, this glorious piece of work emerged. I don’t know about you guys, but there’s something about a supremely awkward Magneto holding an electric guitar (did you notice that it floated up to him via his amazing magnetic powers?) and surrounded by dancing girls that really does it for me. There’s a lot of in-jokes for fans here, too; a variety of X-Men make appearances, and it’s kind of fun to play Spot-the-Mutant. I found Juggernaut, Gambit, Jubilee, Wolverine, Banshee, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Pyro, Professor X, Mystique, and Jean Grey; did you catch anyone I missed, readers?
