Ellen DeGeneres — I mean Kate McKinnon — I mean Ellen DeGeneres — is once again blowing up the internet for something related to Britney Spears. This time, rather than just getting her picture taken with Ed O’Neill, Britney is doing some serious comedy heavy lifting.
In one of this week’s most popular viral videos, Britney joined Ellen to terrorize a mall in Sherman Oaks, California. Here’s the full original video:
Take that, overworked, underpaid retail workers! They never knew what was coming! You thought you only had to deal with wage theft, now you also have to deal with celebrities shoplifting.
Just in case you don’t have the time to watch nearly eight minutes of KRAZY PRANKZ, all you really need to know in case this comes up at the water cooler later is that Ellen and Britney both pretend to be hyper-entitled celebrity scumbags. It’s reminiscent of Ellen’s “In Your Ear”/”Repeat After Me” segments, in which she puts an earpiece in a celebrity’s ear and makes them act insane in public. Here’s a refresher:
The only difference is that Ellen shows up in person with Britney, instead of making her appear to be hallucinating. Still, the results are pretty funny, and the prank victims play along pretty well. So no harm done!
