Katy Perry has finally unveiled the long-awaited music video for her Juicy J-assisted track, “Dark Horse,” on Thursday — and yes, she does her bouncy lean-and-snap dance move.

The Egyptian-influenced visual tells a story of Katy-Patra, the glamorous pharaoh of Memphis, Egypt “a crazy long time ago,” in search of her king.

One by one, pharaohs bribe the diamond-crazed tyrant at the alter — guarded by her Katy Cat-Anubis hybrid army — with jewels, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, Twinkies, a chariot equipped with rims and hydraulics, and a gold-plated pyramid. After vaporizing the suitors with her magical powers, she chose the latter.

Midway through the clip, Juicy J makes his grand appearance and raps his verse as he exits out of a gold sarcophagus rocking hieroglyphics-printed shades and a royal apron.

The Matthew Cullen-directed video comes on the heels of her neon-Egyptian performance of the chart-topping single at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday.

“Dark Horse” is the third cut off her 16-track Prism album available on iTunes now.
