8 Reasons Why "Dark Horse" Is Katy Perry's Best Video Ever
There have been plenty of comparisons to Michael Jackson's Egyptian-themed "Remember the Time" music video, right down to this clip's unimpressed queen. But none of the overlapping ideas are that original for either video. Still, we think Perry did Egypt in a way that only Katy can.
Why is this Katy Perry's best music video ever? Let us count the ways:
1. Jiff the Pomeranian! — No, sadly it wasn't the other insanely famous Internet Pomeranian you're thinking of, but Jiff is quickly growing his own million-plus fanbase. The fuzzy piece of doggy magic posted a photo with Ms. Perry on Valentine's Day, so we know it's him.
Not only is Jiff super-cute, but he actually earns his keeps by doing some sweet tricks — including skateboarding! Clearly, Perry wasn't just looking for a pretty face. A Jiff cameo alone is more than enough to make "Dark Horse" the best Katy Perry video ever. But wait, there's more.

2. Style and Silliness — Katy Perry is one of the utmost mistresses of balancing sexy and silly. But in "Dark Horse," she gives the video an extra potent dose of exceptional style. From her stenciled white wig to her gorgeous gold bodice, the singer appears to have walked straight off the runway, or maybe straight out of the West Hollywood Halloween parade. We would actually wear some of her pieces IRL.
