  1. Remember when the world ended on December 21st, 2012? Well, Britney gave us a teaser the year prior, when she released the Till the World Ends music video on April 05, 2011. The second video off the Femme Fatale era, was directed by Ray Kay, who would later direct the Twister Dance Remix of the song in 2012, and it was filmed in the basement of a meat plant, in Los Angeles. During I am the Femme Fatale, we could see a bit of the behind the scenes of the video. Britney described the set as being grimy and gross, and looking "like there was poop everywhere" but it wasn't poop though, just sweat. She also explained that she likes to watch the playback after filming each scene: "it's just to make sure it's right and that the costume looks right and the dancers are together and we all look in unison. It's an energy and it looks fresh. It has a certain vibe with it and it makes sense." At some point, she changed her heels for ugg boots, during the scenes where her feet weren't showing, to be more comfortable. According to an interview Britney did for the VEVO certified ceremony, her goal for Till the World Ends was to do something "mystical and urban and underground". She and Ray Kay came up together with the concept, along with her management, to put all these elements together. Britney also confessed that this was one of her most difficult videos to shoot. The director also explained the day of December 21st came from the Mayan calendar which noted that date as the end of the world, but also noticed they wanted to give a message of hope with the ending of the clip. The apocalyptic video shows Britney, who wears a leather jacket, and her dancers having an underground party as they wait for the world to end. The hot and heavy environment is reminiscent of her I'm Slave 4 U video, released 10 years earlier, as well as the scenes where she's seen in front of an illuminated background, with similar predominant colors. Throughout the video we see them performing a choreography, while buildings fall down as the entire city collapses above them due to the meteors and earhtquake. In the end, we see Britney now wearing a red bodysuit, getting sprayed with water along with her dancers as the sun rises. Britney then comes out of a manhole smiling, looking at the outcome of the catastrophe from the day before. The following week, on April 14, a different version of the video, ditching the apocalyptic scenes in favor of the choreography, was released as DANCE Till the World Ends. The music video was nominated at the 2011 VMA's for Best Pop Video, which it won, and Best Choreography, which lost to Beyoncé's Run the World. In July 2012, it became Britney's second video to get certified for more than 100 million views on YouTube. There's also another version of the video for the Culture Shock Remix, exclusive to Apple Music and TIDAL Related:
