Lady Gaga's latest video for her fourth single, "Yoü and I," off Born This Way, was set to be released on Thursday via Twitter as Gaga's 1,000th tweet. However -- like most things in the music industry -- the video leaked two days early. So in an effort to still make it her 1,000th tweet, she spent tweets 997 - 999 with the words "FUCK" "THURS" "DAY." Upon the 1,000th tweet she wrote, "You must love all + every part of me, as must I, for this complex +

incomprehensible force to be true" with a YouTube link to the video. And complex is exactly what this music video is all about with its couture styled House of 1000 Corpses meets "Beautiful People" visuals.

Set in the farmland of Nebraska, Lady Gaga is being subjected to medical experiments and torture in a barn that at one point turns her into a mermaid. The dark narrative comes complete with aquatic creature sex, leather-clad dance sequences, violent piano playing, and, of course, an array of outrageous costuming. The track was written for Gaga's former partner and longtime love, Lüc Carl, which explains the random umlaut in Yoü.

Watch the video after the jump.
