Britney Spears released a passel of interactive teaser images Wednesday (July 10) for the video for her “Smurfs 2″ track “Ooh La La,” and it looks to be a family affair for the family movie. The vid features her sons Jayden Jaymes, 6, and Sean Preston, 7.
Spears spoke about the Marc Klasfeld-directed music video, which will officially premiere at noon on Thursday, and her sons’ involvement on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show last month: “[My sons] were actually really, really good on set,” she said. “They play themselves … [but when] we did the actual shoot of the video I didn’t see [them]. I was in hair and makeup, so later on I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable.”
Spears also told Seacrest that her sons were the reason she contributed to the film’s soundtrack in the first place. “They’re obsessed with the Smurfs,” she said. “We’ve seen ’The Smurfs’ movie a million trillion times, and they were told they could be in the video and all this cool stuff, so that’s the reason why I did it.”
Accordingly, the boys got ample play as Brit started building anticipation for the vid’s release. Wednesday morning, she fired off the following tweet and Instagram image, featuring the pop star and her sons munching popcorn in a movie theatre (“Omg. How CUTE are my boys?!” she gushed.) The lyric video hit VEVO at the end of June.
She then followed up with even more snippets from the video — this time via interactive image-sharing tool ThingLink — featuring Britney and her sons watching what is probably “Smurfs 2,” as well as Brit herself frolicking outside.
“Smurfs 2″ is set to open on July 31, but that doesn’t mean that things are going to slow down for Brit anytime soon. Her will.i.am-produced album is currently in the works, with a release date still to come.
