Prancercising is America's favorite new craze, and one nutty video so leave it to John Mayer to use it as the video for his first single from his upcoming record Paradise Valley. In the clip prancercise expert Joanna Rohrback demonstrates "a prance to romance to" set to the tune of "Paper Doll," which some say is about Taylor Swift. (Could be the line about repeated references to the color red or that she’s ‘like 22 girls in one’) The album, "Paradise Valley," should be out in the fall. Meanwhile, John is kicking off his first tour in three years on July 4th at Philly and will cover North America, Europe and South America, with a night at Jones Beach on August 28th- before wrapping up at the end of October.
