Are you possibly in need of a pick-me-up this morning? Great news: Britney Spears's music video for "I Wanna Go" has dropped, and it is awe-inspiring in almost exactly the way it intended to be. Seriously: Vulture is having a really hard time processing the fact that this thing starts off with a full-on re-creation of the "fuck you, fuck you, fuck you ... you're cool" scene from Half Baked, featuring the real Scarface (a.k.a. Guillermo Díaz, possibly known to you from Weeds or as a promoter of the legendary Wrap It Up box). And then ... gets crazier: Britney grabs a fan's butt, gets fun-groped by a cop, smashes a camera, and, like, kills a bunch of paparazzi with a microphone. (During that scene, a marquee in the background is advertising Crossroads 2: Cross Harder. That is intentionally funny!) One of the paparazzi is a terminator, though, so Britney has to run away, which she does, in a convertible, with Scarface. Then Scarface performs a random milk bukkake on himself. (Coincidentally, Random Milk Bukkake is the name of our J-Pop Neutral Milk Hotel covers duo.) Turns out, Scarface is a robot too. Why? Well, the spirit of the song, as reflected in the video, is that of free will and dream fulfillment in the face of a repressive society. Once, I was the robot, Britney is saying, stifled by a (well, still in effect) conservatorship. But now? Now I'm living my life — and all of you are the robots.
