Britney Spears, 'Til the World Ends' (2011)
Britney Spears' new video for "Til the World Ends" is the latest in a long line of music videos in which pop stars dance in post-apocalyptic future landscapes. Spears' clip has most of the bases covered – there are sexy people wearing tattered, badass Mad Max-style outfits, a bombed-out futuristic city and quasi-militaristic choreography. The video takes place on December 21st, 2012, which isn't all that far off from now, though the style and setting look like something a bit further off into the future. It could be that the end of the world just happens to come while Britney and her friends reenact that weird underground rave from the second Matrix movie.
