Britney Spears’ “Criminal”: Product Placement And Domestic Violence All In Video

By: Jessica Wakeman / October 19, 2011

Britney Spears’ “Criminal” music video is out and if “Mob Wives” hasn’t locked it down as its theme song, they should. The song itself is typical Britney-meh and the video is Britney-awful. There’s not one but two incidents where the cameras linger on her official perfume. (Product placement, y’all!) Brit-Brit and her real-life boo Jason Trawick play passionate bandits who meet when he saves her from being roughed up on the street by a douchey date. A great message for the kiddies mob wives whose real lives are actually like this: it’s okay to trade one criminal for another โ€” just trade up!  [Just Jared]
