Break the Ice
There was a lot of anticipation built up for Britney’s new music video after some stills were released yesterday. It features a superhero-style animated Britney battling bad guys in Las Vegas. The style of anime is reminiscent of that “Aeon Flux” show that used to be on MTV’s “Liquid Television.” I’m not a fan of Britney’s repetitive video-game dance music, but this song isn’t bad.
It was reportedly Britney’s idea to use animation for the video and that was a wise move given her many image problems lately. She should just become an animated character permanently like Gorillaz, only venturing out as an alter ego of her cartoon self.
