"Bon Appétit" is a song by American singer Katy Perry featuring American hip hop group Migos from Perry's fifth studio album Witness (2017). It was released as the album's second single on April 28, 2017 by Capitol Records. It is a dance-pop and trap-pop song with lyrics that feature oral sex double entendres involving food. Commercially, the song charted at number five and Israel as well as the top twenty in Belgium (Wallonia) and Canada.
Dent De Cuir directed the song's music video, which was released on May 12, 2017 and features chef Roy Choi. It first shows Perry wrapped in plastic before chefs cut the wrapping open and "start kneading her like dough" before she is boiled in a pot with carrots while singing her lyrics and Choi serves her as a meal to various cannibalizing patrons. Migos watch and rap their verses as Perry rings the bell, signaling them to turn a switch allowing her to turn the tables on the patrons. The patrons are then bound, gagged and then dismembered by the chefs as Perry then dances on a pole. Perry then is served a pie containing dismembered body parts of the patrons.
"Dent de Cuir's clip for Katy Perry somehow manages the delicate balance of being equally sexy and horrifying. With a title like Bon Appétit and a neon NSFW sign flickering on at the beginning, there are plenty of places your mind could go with this one. Although if you imagined 'Katy Perry's almost-naked body being stretched and contorted like dough by a room full of chefs before being cooked in a large broth and eventually doing a pole dance for Migos' then your name is probably Dent de Cuir. The rest of us don't need to imagine it - here it is. Perry goes through a full transformation in this video, which expertly pushes the boundaries for what's deemed as acceptably weird in a glossy, shiny pop video." (Luke Bather, Promonews)
