The accompanying music video for the song portrays Gaga singing it in various costumes and playing in a mansion. Gaga explained in the nineteenth episode of her "Transmision Gagavision" series, the main idea behind the music video of "Poker Face". The video premiered on October 22, Gaga explained in an interview with them that the line carries a bit of an undertone of confusion about love and sex. The video ends with the head shot of Gaga singing the Mum-mum-mum-ma hook. She suggested that the song dealt with her personal experience with bisexuality. According to Kerri Mason of Billboard, the composition "carr[ies] the pleather-and-sequins vibe of the downtown New York scene out of the underground and onto the FM dial without losing its smut and sass. She has refreshed the pop world in the US and UK at one of the slowest times of the year. The song has attained worldwide success, topping the charts in more than seventeen countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and many European countries. However, the liner notes from the album booklet indicate both these lines only repeat "she's got me like nobody". With a focused artistic vision, a swagger in her interview style and above all, a fantastic collection of diverse pop nuggets, Gaga is playing her cards right—and "Poker" is another obvious ace. The live performances included an electronic version performed as the last song of the tour, and an acoustic version she played on the piano. Gaga performed the song for the eighth season of American Idol and her first headlining Fame Ball Tour. The video also features two harlequin Great Danes and several white mannequins on her swimming pool deck. This is followed by the sound of dance music, produced by a powerful beat from the instruments and a stuttering hook following the chorus. Gaga stated in an interview that "Poker Face" was written by her as a pop song and was a tribute to her rock 'n' roll boyfriends. After the hook "Can't read my Poker Face" the backup singer says "He's got me like nobody" and then in the next line says "She's got me like nobody".
