Britney Spears enlists boyfriend Jason Trawick for her latest video for her song “Criminal.” She obviously tried to keep it all in the family, making it easier to sex it up on screen in the racy shoot.
The off-screen lovers play a steamy sex scene where Jason gropes his scantily-clad girlfriend’s breasts before the tumble into bed.
The video borrows heavily from fabled bankrobbers Bonnie and Clyde.
Trawick plays a motorcycle-riding bad-boy type, complete with full body tattoo, who rescues Britney from an abusive boyfriend at a swank party.
Before long, however, Brit and her new lover are slinging hot lead and robbing convenience stores.
The police can’t touch them after they are cornered in the hideout. Bullets riddle the place, but they make good on their escape.
Incidentally, the gun play scene caused an uproar where it was filmed in Britain, after local officials claimed it glamorized crime and the use of handguns.
When officials finally saw outtakes of Spears with a replica gun in hand, they complained that the pop star’s production crew had misled them about the nature of the video.
“We did not agree a replica gun could be used. We are disappointed the film crew made a last-minute change to the scene,” the officials said in a statement.
The production company later apologized, but the gun play made it into the video.
