The 30-second clip features a mash-up of tunes by Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. Fittingly, one poster shows Spears’ head sitting on top of Jackson’s body in her iconic Rolling Stone cover from 1993.
The "Till The World Ends" singer appears in the promo, but doesn’t join in the dancing. (Around the 10-second mark, an extra can be seen wearing the pink-thong-over-jeans and matching top she donned in her “I’m A Slave For You” video.)
“Billy Jean” and “Like A Virgin” are also scribbled on posters that pop-up throughout the video - no doubt paying tribute to Michael Jackson and Madonna.
What do you think of Spears’ VMA promo?
