Drag queen re-creates entire Madonna Super Bowl halftime show

Alexia Twist as Madonna
The bootstrap brilliance alone dicates a look at the video that accompanies the above photo: a performance of Madonna's entire Super Bowl halftime show featuring not just a Material Girl impersonator, but also LMFAO, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. cameos. (And, yes, the erstwhile M.I.A. does flip the bird at the crowd at the proper time.) Cee Lo Green makes an appearance at the end.

The extravaganza took place at Victoria Haus in Brasilia, Brazil, and features the drag queen Alexia Twister as Madonna, who over the course of 13-plus minutes -- and with the help of a few scrappy background dancers and a rear-projection screen casting images from the actual halftime show -- runs through all the vogue moves, cartwheels, booty bounces and miscellaneous ridiculousness within Madge's performance.
