The Crevette Films are a collection of three art films created by Lady Gaga used as backdrops and introductions during her live performances in 2009. The three films were shot on December 30, 2008 in New York City. They document the life of Candy Warhol, a female version of one of Gaga's biggest inspirations, Andy Warhol.
Une Crevette Film
Lady Gaga said she chose the name 'Crevette' (shrimp) because:

In the Book of Gaga (2009), Gaga reveals that she co-directed the short films with Lady Starlight. The yellow plastic gun used in the films was re-used in the music video for "Video Phone" (Remix). Starlight described the films as "Warhol-meets-horror mini films". For the leading man role, Gaga asked a friend of her family, Jack Ketchum.
Who Shot Candy Warhol?
Candy Warhol tells a man that Pop ate her heart but he doesn't believe her and she tells him that she feels free.
Gaga about this Crevette: "I am sitting helplessly in a white room with a strange man holding a yellow rubber gun with pink blood over my heart, and a pantyhose that distorts the image of my true idenity." In the final film, Gaga tells the man that Pop wanted her face; after she introduces herself, the man asks her for her real name. But she tells him that she doesn't understand the question—she has no identity except for what Pop has given her. The yellow gun was used again on the Video Phone music video. This interlude contains samples from "Just Dance". Note: In the North American Leg, Candy (Gaga) replaces "I don't understand your question" with "I don't read your question".
