Britney Spears’ “I Wanna Go” Video: Your Pop Culture Guide

By: Becky Bain / June 22, 2011

Britney Spears must spend a lot of her free time watching movies and TV, because the femme fatale’s daydreams in her  “I Wanna Go” video pull an awful lot of content from pop culture. The fun clip, directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, gets inspired by everything from stoner flicks to action thrillers to Spears’ own IMDb profile. Jump below to educate yourself on all the pop culture references in Brit’s newest vid.

#1. Britney rumors.

The reporter’s question, “Is it true you banned junk food, smiles, candy, sunshine and laughter from your Femme Fatale tour?” is referencing rumors like these. He forgot to mention alcohol, too. Or maybe booze wasn’t banned from her tour after all?

#2. Half Baked

This is the NSFW scene from the 1998 stoner comedy Brit was referencing in the opening scene. They even got the fast food crown!

#3. Britney’s Disney past

Nice nod to her days working for the Mouse House.

#4. Crossroads

This reference to Britney’s critically panned film from 2002 make us literally laugh out loud. If the Crossroads sequel is anything like this video, we’re all for it!

#5. The Terminator

That red glowing robot eye is straight out of Arnold’s eye socket.

#6. “Thriller”

A direct reference to the very end of Michael Jackson’s legendary music video. Not the freshest pop culture reference, but hey, why not?

Did we miss any? And is Guillermo (the very same Guillermo from Weeds!) pouring milk all over himself a reference to something, or is it just plain weird for the sake of being weird?
