E! Online is reporting that Britney Spears has just recently shot a promo spot for the upcoming VMA’s with host Russell Brand.

“It was mostly ad-libbed, with Russell asking her for advice about hosting the show,” a source tells me. “There’s also a 9,000-pound elephant in it, as in ‘the elephant in the room.’ “

Oh how funny, Britney! … Please refer to the graphical representation above of what the advertisement may look like.
