Prepare yourselves -- there's a new video on the web that sees Joseph Gordon-Levitt performing Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." Unfortunately, it's not a killer recreation that sees JG-L putting on some Gaga frocks and acting out an epic, dance-laden music video. As much as we'd all want that and know he'd be awesome at it, between his dance scene in (500) Days of Summer and his turn as Nancy Spungen in the film's spoof video, this is something a little more straight-forward.

During one of hitRECORD.org's Summer in the City shows, the actor hit the stage with a guitar to offer his own personal rendition of "Bad Romance."

As he says mid-song, for those questioning the "artistic integrity" of Lady Gaga, Gordon-Levitt notes that one verse has 3 Hitchcock references, and the use of the word "schtick" (perhaps a contender to battle Rick Springfield's use of the word "moot"?).

Watching this video, I hereby demand that someone write up an awesome comedy where JG-L gets to play a cover band dude. I want to see him take on more popular tunes. But if that's too much to ask, maybe at least a guest spot on Glee?

But enough words. Enjoy some "Bad Romance" for yourself below.
