Lolol noo... "elephant in the room" is a phrase used when there's an awkward/intense topic that everyone in the room knows about but no one wants to talk about it or face it.

First of all. That VMA promo has to be one of her best looks. Perfection from head to toe. She was serving mature Oopsney/Brirney eraney. She looked so young and pretty during this time period.

Also looking back she was sending so many hints in 2008. And this is definitely one of them.


I have a feeling trapped in elevator aka HUMAN Nature intro was one of them as well.

The elephant in the room was the 2007 performance. That’s been confirmed. Russel asked the president of MTV how was he supposed to do a promo with her without “addressing the elephant in the room” and that’s how they got the idea lol

the couch is a cute reference. Could be a reference to her newly controlled life but that’s just a theory

How did I never notice this :katyfrog_perry_upset_um:

I think I honestly was too stunned by how amazing she looked to give any serious thought as to why someone decided to put an elephant behind her. Although if this were the 2020 VMA's, I can see her doing the same photoshoot while her team she posts some Instagram about with the caption "Elephants are such GLORIOUS creatures!!!! *tongue emoji, elephant emoji, monkey emoji*, such STRENGTH such GRACE, I can't wait to go to the ZOO once this virus is over!!! Hope y'all appreciate the BEAUTY in our world!!! *laughing, eyeroll, tongue out, bunny, cat, tree emojis*" :britlol_britney_surprised_wow_oh_shocked_choatic:

Wow I never even thought about why there was an elephant in the promo commercials, but now it does make sense.  I know the elephant in the room phrase but never even put it together between the two.  I didn't even realize it was the same couch either.

yes, it was indeed very clever; the elephant was just there, and it was not referenced or mentioned or contributed to the promo. it was indeed the elephant in the room who we all pretend is not there.

This promo is awesome! She looked so beautiful and was so charming. When Russell tells her that pretty soon “Brand” would be her surname and she says; “oh gosh” :cuteidk_britney_excited_laugh_yes_yas_happy_smile:

I thought the elephant in the room was pretty clever. But never really recognized the couch from Overprotected, pretty cool.  :verycool_britney_nod_glory_yes_yas_mhmm:
