ktl.jpg.6c100a48a1ada747423755aade0c69a5.jpgOn July 27, 2009, Britney Spears released an animated music video for Kill the Lights.

 

On February 10, 2009, a fan fiction contest was launched on britney.com. The winner of the contest would get to see their story becoming a plot for an official music video of any song from the Circus album.

Later, the winner of the contest was announced. It was Eliana Moyano from Argentina, who picked Kill the Lights and this was her entry:

Choose which song from the menu: 
Kill The Lights
Enter your story: 

At the begining when Danja speaks we have a animated Danja in a radio environment and at the same time in the frame we have Britney surrounded of a lot of paparazzis.
When the song starts Britney run and takes a rocket and scape some other planet. Some of the paparazzis take others rockets and go behind her. When she lands to the other planet, some aliens are there waiting for her, everybody knows her. They have posters with her image, some aliens are dreesed like her. She makes a performance, everybody takes her pictures, she pose and sings. Meanwhile paparazzis from our planet go arriving. When the lights from the cameras are so hard she takes avantage of it and scapes, she takes a control or joystick or something and takes the rocket. When she is far from that planet she sees that it is full of light. She turn of the lights with the joystick. She smiles in a close up when the rocket pass in front of the camera.

On May 18, we got a sneak peek of the video

The video was directed by PUNY and was released for purchase via iTunes on September 4, 2009. The video only features about half of the song, and though some fans consider it the continuation of Break the Ice (which also got an animated video) this relationship was never confirmed.

Kill the Lights was not released as an official single, but it was included in the promotional CD that came with the perfume Circus Fantasy released later in the year, along with Circus (Junior Vasquez Club Circus Mix).

My favorite animated Britney video :bop:

Should have been a single, should have gotten a bad *** video, should have gotten a live show performance somewhere in the last 11 years :lessons:
