How’s that for a wake-up call? Britney Spears surprised Jimmy Kimmel in the middle of the night by storming his bedroom with a troupe of shirtless male dancers as part of an elaborate prank, which he showed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday, August 3. Watch the hilarious stunt in the video above!
Taking a cue from Rihanna — who pulled off a similar prank on April Fools’ Day in 2015 — the “Pretty Girls” singer, 34, snuck into Kimmel’s bedroom (with his wife’s permission) to put on a show. “We’re gonna go wake him up and see what happens,” Spears whispered.
Once she and her dancers were in position, the room lit up with flashing colored lights and her new single “Make Me…” started playing on the stereo. Spears, clad in a black crop top, black bikini bottoms, fishnet stockings and knee-high black boots, crawled into bed with a bewildered Kimmel, 48, and proceeded to gyrate around next to him.
At one point, her squad surrounded him and two dancers stood over, thrusting and swiveling their hips while he buried his face in a pillow. Then, just as quickly as they had arrived, they left. “Bye, Jimmy!” Spears said as they walked out, past Kimmel’s wife, Molly McNearney. “Sorry, Jimmy!”
“Thanks for coming by,” the late-night host replied. “What happened to my wife?”
This is the second time Kimmel has gotten a rude (but funny) awakening from a pop star. When Rihanna did it, she brought confetti and showered the TV star with fake dollar bills while lip-synching to “Bitch Better Have My Money.”
