Britney's Criminal video

The video for Britney Spears' new single Criminal is brilliantly ludicrous. Here is a brief synopsis of the plot:

1) Britney's comedy English boyfriend slaps her at a party.

2) Another English man, but this time with tattoos and a motorbike (oooh, dangerous), comes to Britney's rescue.

3) Britney kicks her boyfriend's nadgers right up into his mouth and makes off on the motorbike.

4) Britney has steamy sex with tattoo man.

5) Oh no! There is a gun in his apartment.

6) A theft is committed with the gun.

7) The police track down Britney and her lover and, without provocation, shoot them dead for over a minute.

8) Or do they?

Despite a reliance on filmic cliché and the fact that it is dangerously unthethered from reality, this video has a credits sequence that proudly boasts: "Story by Britney Spears and Chris Marrs Piliero".

Sadly, the video is going up and down from YouTube like a yo-yo, so we have created our own behind-the-scenes "documentary" of how the finer points of the storyline were thrashed out on set.

None of the characters or situations depicted in this video are based on real events or people. Obviously.
