The Marc Klasfeld-directed video, which premiered on Thursday (July 11), opens with Britney and her two sons, Jayden and Sean , sitting in a theater checking out a screening of “The Smurfs 2,” the July 31 sequel to the hit 2011 flick. But before long, their trip to the cinema takes a turn for the wacky.
“Check this out! This is the best part right here,” Britney tells Jayden and Sean before she becomes a part of the movie by getting zapped into the Smurfs’ cartoon world.
Spears chills with the blue family, much to the delight of her children. “Cool!” they proclaim in unison when they see their mom up on the big screen.
Spears is all smiles as the feel-good track serves as the soundtrack for her romp around the Smurfs’ tiny village. In between shots of the singer hanging out with the blueberry-colored stars (including Katy Perry’s Smurfette), there are scenes straight from the flick. They give fans a taste of some of the action, including what’s in store for stars Neil Patrick Harris and Hank Azaria, who plays bad guy Gargamel. It seems like once again these two will face off against one another with the Smurfs caught in the middle.
The singer recently opened up about her sons’ love for the Smurfs, and how they served as her inspiration to record the tune .
“But the main reason why I did it was because my boys. They’re obsessed with the Smurfs. 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,” she said last month when the song debuted. “It’s about feeling good. Like when a guy makes you giddy. It’s more of a feeling. When I eat chocolate I have that ’ooh la la’ feeling.”
