Nick Steele takes aim in Britney Spears Fantasy TV Ad


Britney’s dressed up as a goddess, flirting with a hunter in the forest (Nick Steele). As she threatens to leave for her world tour he pulls out his bow and ‘magic love arrow’ and shoots her in the back. She’s forced to stay with him. Of course the arrow has a suction cup on the end.

Britney’s narrative

Once upon a time there was a goddess and a hunter.
She was beautiful and he couldn’t help himself.
There wasn’t a single part of her that he didn’t want to touch.
She was leaving soon on a goddess world tour
So he did something crazy and they lived happily ever after.
Fantasy… everybody has one.
