We’ve already shown you one Katy Perry-themed YouTube video, in which Super Hornet pilot Lt. Clayton Heyward offers to take the pop star to the West Coast Hornet Ball next month. It’s got all the basics for an online hit — parody-song backing, costume changes, cutaways to Futurama characters, etc.

The video’s surpassed 30,000 views — an impressive figure, but nowhere near the Perry-themed video that went up a few days ago and aired on Comedy Central on Sunday night as part of a benefit for autism programs.
