Britney Spears Music Video: A Giant Corporate Shill

by at . Comments

Proving she's a corporate drone first and a singer second, Britney Spears Inc. made $500,000 for product placements in her "Hold It Against Me" video.

This isn't to say that product placement is unique to Britney, but it seems like she's more about the marketing and less about the music these days.

The most obvious example in the video is Plentyoffish (dot) com, an online dating site that coughed up "a couple hundred thousand" to be featured ...

Plenty of Fish

Would you hold it against her for making her video a giant ad?

Of course, they saw immediate results, to the tune of a 20 percent spike in traffic the day after the Britney Spears music video premiered.

That was far from the only such case, too. Check out the video after the jump and see how many blatant product shots you can spot ...

Britney Spears Quotes

I miss it here so much! I love it so much! It makes me it's kinda like bittersweet coming here because I used to live here for two years. And when I come here, it's like, man, I wish I had my apartment here still.

MTV has long played an important role in my career. How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs?
