Rebel Wilson showed in her characteristic waitress uniform, as well as sparkling green sequins, irresistibly associated with frames from the 1999 Britney Spears music video. “Senior Year”, however, is not a film biography of the singer. In a Netflix production, Wilson plays an ex-cheerleader who tries to regain popularity in high school – and win the crown of prom queen – after twenty years in a coma.
Rebel Wilson writes: I’m Britney’s biggest fan
On the photo the actress posted on Instagram, she wrote: “My life is a little crazy right now. PS I love you, Britney.”
On the video you can see here, she made a bit of a longer comment, admitting that she is a huge Britney Spears fan and is also the character she plays. That’s why the deal with “Crazy” inspired her group of cheerleaders. Netflix’s “Senior Year” also stars Alicia Silverstone, Justin Hartley, Angourie Rice, Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, Mary Holland and Chris Parnell alongside Wilson. Alex Hardcastle is the director.
“(You Drive Me) Crazy” is the third single from Britney Spears’ debut album “… Baby One More Time”, and was also featured on the soundtrack of the romantic comedy “Drive Me Crazy”. The music video was nominated for the MTV Video Music Awards in 2000 – for the best dance music video. However, it was not possible to win the statuette, and then the video for the song “Waiting for Tonight” by Jennifer Lopez won.
