The star debuted the four-minute-long film to fans last week, after working with music video maestro, Jonus Akerlund.

The much-hyped music movie includes everything from Brit donning a giant wedding dress – only to get it splashed in jets of paint – to a full-action fight sequence.

But that’s not the only thing we noticed about the film. Brit’s small-screen comeback is littered with product placements – from Sony to cosmetic firm Make Up Forever, and bizarrely, website PlentyOfFish.com – reportedly netting her a cool $500,000.

In one shot, Britney’s shown singing her single on a giant Sony television, with the logo in full view of the camera.

And in another, the songstress is shown spraying herself with her own brand of perfume, and touching up her make-up, clutching a pot branded Make Up Forever.

Bizarrely, Brit also manages to squeeze in a mention for website PlentyOfFish.com – who reportedly paid $200,000 to appear – when she’s seen browsing a computer screen.

This is not the first time the unlikely company have paid for product placement. The American dating agency appeared in Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s Telephone video, just last year.
