This "RuPaul's Drag Race" alum did the Britney imitation to end all Britney imitations in this "Slumber Party" parody
Clearly the best way to celebrate the fact that it’s Friday is with something Britney Spears-related, and this is pretty random — but we’re crushing on it SO freaking hard.
RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Derrick Barry spoofed Britney’s Slumber Party video, making it all about awkward office holiday parties! Start mentally preparing.
You know the song, right? It’s from her latest album Glory, and we LOVE that it’s already being parodied. Of course, Barry has impersonated Spears many times before (in fact its made him famous), so he’s had plenty of practice! And in this video — directed by Adrian Anchondo — he resembles the pop star like you’ve never seen anyone resemble another human before. It’s UNCANNY.
Guys it’s official: this just became the best Christmas song we could have ever asked for. And apart from nailing her actual look, Barry even mimics Spears’s mannerisms, expressions, and dance moves!
He’s not the first person to take a crack at impersonating Britney…remember when Ariana Grande busted one out with Jimmy Fallon? But it’s definitely the most extreme version.
We just love how Barry’s version seems to be born out of a genuine love for Britney. Above all else, he’s a true fan.
Should we compare it to Britney’s actual video, which co-stars Tinashe? OKAY IF YOU INSIST.
Damnnnn. It’s a great song, and both versions will probably be rotating at our Christmas party. It’s safe to say that a lot of people may hesitate before impersonating Britney for some time…because Derrick SLAYED it.
