I am speechless. I have never wanted a Britney Spears video not to end so badly. Epic kudos to Chris Marrs Piliero for directing such an incredible piece of art. The video for Criminal just dropped, after a couple of brilliant and rather clever social media-based previews via GIFs from Britney’s official Twitter page.

Piliero also directed I Wanna Go and has totally done the fourth (and probably final) single from Femme Fatale major justice. The clip stars Britney and her real-life husband beau Jason Trawick in a Bonnie and Clyde-esque adaptation of the song. Britney looks flawless and there are tonnes of nods to past videos including Piece of Me, Womanizer, Radar and My Prerogative. I could literally watch this a thousand times. Let’s also take a moment to appreciate the fact that it was filmed in London and how insane Jason’s body looks.
