What Would Have Happened If Britney Fell With That Python In 2001?

It's VMA Season, and we just got wind that Britney Spears is once again performing. 

It's been almost 10 years since Britney Spears has taken the MTV VMA stage, and when we learned that she was returning, we got this chilling, almost American Horror Story esque teaser. One that included... DING DING DING - A PYTHON.

It's not just a stage. It's a story... @MTV #VMAs August 28.pic.twitter.com/crfeNGKhMe

 

Nothing else in the video suggests throwback backgrounds from her previous performances (like piggybacking with NSYNC, or making out with Madonna), so we can only wonder if Britney will somehow use another concept that will relate with her iconic 2001 performance of "I'm A Slave 4U" including a python.

Though, she is performing with rapper G-Eazy. I'll refrain from comparing Gerald to a snake to make a giggly punchline.

And now, as I re-watch this footage, I can only think of the terror that would have happened if Britney would have fell with a live python. That's how I know I'm getting old.

The MTV VMAs will be on August 28. Keep your eyes peeled.
