Colourful Cameo: Britney Spears in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Since she was pop-culturally relevant at the time, Brit appeared in the opening scene of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999). I realize she ain't quite relevant anymore, but that doesn't make the memory of this moment any less hilarious.

Not only is she riding on the backs of beefcakes like a total douchwallet, but she turns out to be a femme-bot. I remember this moment in theatres, and people hooted and cheered like I'd never seen a crowd react before. It was awesome. And of course, I love Austin's pink fluffy scrunchies.
