And not just her first name either. Our friend Spike, who used to co-host the metal show on Philly rock station WYSP (R.I.P. Rockers!), brought something to our attention earlier this week. This might be a ten year-old observation, but it’s pretty obvious that Britney Spears’ breakout video, “…Baby One More Time” is a complete and total ripoff of Philly hair band Britny Fox’s “Girlschool.” Don’t think so?
Girls in catholic school uniform? Check. Video starts with a school bell ringing? Check. Girls dancing/headbanging? Check. The only real difference is that Spears’ school is coed, while the Britny Fox video appears to take place in a girl’s school. Go figure.
