Britney Spears is in on the joke.
The pop princess appeared on NBC's Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris Tuesday, and with the help of Joe Jonas and host Neil Patrick Harris, Spears pranked three prospective bodyguards. For the " Voices in Your Head" segment, hidden cameras captured the "Pretty Girls" singer meeting with the security guards as she took instructions from Jonas and Harris via a hidden earpiece.
Andrew Opal was the first to arrive, and Spears did as she was told when she introduced herself, saying, "Hi, I'm the one and only Britney Spears." Later, when Keith Manning entered the room, Spears quoted her iconic line from 2008's "Gimme More," saying, "Hi! It's Britney, bitch!" To Harris' surprise, she went rogue and acted scatterbrained during her interview with Manning. When she met the final applicant, Wesley Patterson, Spears juggled two water bottles and said, " I hear I'm supposed to hire you. Why?"
"I've worked in the worst security situations," Patterson said.
"So, you're like a superhero?" Jonas asked Spears to ask.
"Like Batman!" Harris added, which Spears repeated to Patterson.
"Exactly," Patterson said.
"Or Scooby-Do," Jonas said, which Spears repeated with an animated flourish.
