Hit Me Baby, One More Time

Okay, from the useless celebrity gossip world (of which we are all guilty adherents, I'm sure), the car crash that was Britney Spears' “performance” at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this week is grabbing a lot of attention.

If I had a bit more time, I'd do this mash-up properly but for now, you can enjoy a fairly funny juxtaposition – an MP3 of a Travis cover of the song that launched Brit's career against a video of the VMA meltdown.

For this to work properly,
1. click “play” on the video below and pause at 45 seconds, muting the sound in the YouTube player (note: it is very likely the clip be removed from YouTube soon since all other earlier versions of the same clip have been so if you're going to try this, don't wait.)

2. open this link in a new tab and let it play past the introductory remarks, clicking back to the YouTube tab before the singing starts.

3. click play on the YouTube video so the video clip and the performance of the song  start at roughly the same time.

4. Enjoy.

It's not quite The Wizard of Oz synched with Dark Side of the Moon but it has its moments.
