Britney Spears’ ‘Til the World Ends’ Gets ‘Pop-Up Video’ Treatment
VH1 is reviving its 'Pop-Up' video series, and it looks like pop princess Britney Spears will be one of the first to receive the trivia treatment.
The resurrected show, which originally aired from 1996-2002, will premiere on Oct. 3 and feature the 29-year-old's 'Til the World Ends' video with plenty of behind-the-scenes tidbits in its snappy animated bubbles.
If you're the impatient type, you can get a sneak peek at the fact-laden clip now. Some of the fun morsels of info include the fact that the video was shot in a warehouse, which Britney called "grimey and gross." Another bubble adds: "She felt like there was poop everywhere."
The new version of 'Pop-Up Video' will remain much like the original, with the inclusion of rap and hip-hop videos, says executive producer Woody Thompson. Audiences will also have opportunities to interact with the show and create their own pop-up videos online.
“I get it all the time, people saying, ‘I grew up on 'Pop-Up Video.' I was there when it came out!’ It feels like a rock band," Thompson said. "It’s a cultural reference that says that you are smart and that you get it and that you don’t just watch TV, you watch cool, smart shows like 'Pop-Up Video.'"
