Let's hear it for the age of the SEO concept song.

First things first: This is not a video of Tay-Tay eating out with ex (ex?) boyfriend John Mayer.

Instead, it is a new video for Boston retropop superfiend JOHN POWHIDA's song "John Mayer Dines with Taylor Swift," in which he mercilessly deconstructs the interpersonal dynamics of that particular celebrity encounter with a rapier wit worthy of the Onion.

If Google searchbots happen to think otherwise, then one can assume Powhida won't mind -- even if a legion of Top 40 fans end up being very, very confused.

Powhida, a cult sensation who won the 2011 Rock N Roll Rumble at an age when most performers are hanging up the gloves, is a master of the classic-rock suckerpunch. This particular song owes absolutely nothing, save the premise, to the musical styles of Mr. Mayer or Ms. Swift -- but we sure are detecting a David Bowie vibe here. Feel free to disagree in the comments.

Here it is:
