Katy Perry is notorious for having incredible, odd, and never before seen props during her wildly popular world tours, and now she has done it again. A recent video has gone viral for its bizarre prop selection, which includes unsavory bathroom items. The clip shows Perry sitting on a pile of toilet paper on top of a toilet while singing one of her hit songs — with someone dressed in a poop costume while dancing out of a prop toilet.

The "Firework" singer previously announced via Twitter that her Las Vegas Residency, "Play," would begin on December 29 at the Resorts World hotel. Due to COVID-19 protocols, the concert has limited shows in January, then breaks until the beginning of March.

Perry is no stranger to going viral. With more than 44 million monthly listeners on Spotify, many of her hits have over 100 million streams. Perry's music videos such as "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)," "Roar," and "Bon Appétit" have reached over 1 billion views on YouTube. However, it's the star's toilet humor that left fans utterly baffled.

Posted on TikTok by @auroras_and_sad_prose_, the caption reads, "Just wanna give you angles."
