    UNDATED (CNN) -- The prancercise lady is back in the saddle, this time a major recording star is the one trotting out the exercise workout inspired by horses.

    Pop meets prancercise; when a big star like John Mayer turns the prancercise lady into the leading lady on his new single, it's natural to wonder, hold your horses. How'd that happen? Joanna Rohrback says her understanding is that Mayer saw her original prancercise video with the volume down while he was working on his song. Rohrback says, "He saw that my movement synchronized with the song very well."

    Next thing you know Mayer's crew was shooting her prancercising to "Paper Doll." It's been a surreal ride for Joanna; imagine seeing yourself spoofed by dozens of YouTube videos spoofing her as a horse, by a family, and by a lady walking her dog. Rohrback says, "It's been very chaotic, to be honest with you, Jeanne. I just can't seem to get a handle on everything."

    Joanna calls the reaction to her rhythmic exercise routine inspired by horses overwhelming but thrilling. prancercise has even spawned "Twittercise."

    On the Today Show there was almost a prancercise collision between the hosts. On HLN's News Now, anchor Mike Galanos led what amounted to a prancercise flash mob. And on the KTWO morning show in Casper, Wyoming, a fitness trainer gave her critique.

    Let's face it, we all look as graceless as donkeys compared to the princess of prancercising.
