FADE IN:

We slowly push in on the door to a small soundproof room. (This one is like a phone booth, it’s glass windows fogged up, open blinds hanging from the side.)

The SUPER BASS comes in six times.

With each of the first five we JumpCut closer to the door.

On the last one Darren comes out by KICKING the door OPEN.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Ooh

 

His smooth swift movement takes him out and into the recording studio the booth is in. (At about a 45° angle)

On the last ’Yeah’ he looks back towards…

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Ah Ah Oh

Yeah Yeah Yeah

 

Standing in the doorway of the small booth we quick zoom to an extreme close-up of some seductive hips fitted in latex.

Britney Spears hios.

 

LYRICS

Ohh

 

An extreme close-up of cleavage, the tight V-shaped substance holding back a pair of dangerously tantalizing breasts.

 

LYRICS

Ooh

 

Moving up just above eye level while tilting down slightly to capture that perfect shot of…

Britney.

We go into fall back.

 

LYRICS

Yeah Yeah Yeah

 

She starts to walk forward (toward camera – oh so sexy) Darren approaching her side and walking with her. (Left side)

 

LYRICS

Lookin’ like first class

acting like a cheap date

 

Now on her right side, the two just stand there in front of the camera, she posed in arousing vogue while he sings his thoughts.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Honey drippin’ smile

so stylin’

bet you know what you do

 

Close-up of Brittany, flinging her head up in a statement: yes, she does know. (Her hair flowing back in Slo-Mo like one of those shampoo commercials)

Britney Spears, hair flowing up.

LYRICS

Don’t you baby?

 

Brit walks away from Darren as if he’s not even there.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Eyes that penetrate

 

She takes a seat next to a soundboard, in an office chair on wheels.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Heat that denigrates

 

In his swiftness he makes his way over to her.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

let’s communicate

 

Throwing a MJ-style kick up in the air, Darren’s foot coming to a rest atop the soundboard.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I can hardly wait

to get to you

 

He grinds his hips and pelvis her way. (Stylish and cool, not raunchy and perverted)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

and show you baby

 

Britney shoves herself back in the wheeled office chair she sits in, creating distance between the two.

 

LYRICS

If you want to

 

In the same fluid movement, as the chair whips away from Darren, Britney rises from it and walks away. (Slo-Mo)

 

LYRICS

I can be dirty too

 

Still in the spot where she left him Darren twirls his index finger, brings it up, then brings that same hand down, (palm facing floor) bringing his head up and back as if experiencing something sensual down below. (Again, this is subtle, not over-the-top, and all done in sync with the lyrics)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I can spin you around

pick you up

and go down

 

Darren’s hand goes for the doorknob of the door through which she left, but the door is shut before he can reach it so his hand finds nothing but air.

 

LYRICS

If you want to

 

He turns his back to the door and leans up against it.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I can be just like you

 

Britney’s back is up against the other side of the closed door, moving like a snake in her sinful seductiveness.

 

LYRICS

And do the dirty things

you do

 

She smiles.

 

LYRICS

Ah Ah

 

Darren, on the opposite side, her games making him want her more.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Yeah Yeah Yeah

 

Moments Later:

The door is clear, Darren no longer leaning against it.

It BURSTS OPEN just as the vocals start back up, Britney standing in the doorway.

 

LYRICS

You walk into a room

imperceptible boom

 

Quick tight shot of Brit.

 

LYRICS

Tight shot

 

Quick zoom on that tight shot.

 

LYRICS

Close zoom

 

Fall back to a wide shot, Darren being brought into foreground as we do so. (Facing camera too)

 

 

LYRICS

(Singing)

When you move

it’s assumed

you feel it too

 

Although he’s facing camera with her at his back his eyes shift downward and to the left. (He’s in foreground-left frame, she’s in background-right frame, slowly walking towards him)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Don’t you baby?

 

Grabbing him by the shoulder Britney whips Darren around.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Tickin’ like a fuse

 

Clenches him by the collar…

 

LYRICS

(singing)

there’s an itch

I gotta scratch

 

Throws him into the office chair…

 

LYRICS

(singing)

ten minutes in a room

 

And with one hand on each of the arms of the chair she THRUSTS it away towards the soundboard…

Sending Darren flying along with it.

Then following it with her deadly sensuous walk. (Darren’s POV)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Get this monkey

off my back

any dark space would do

to show you baby

 

With Darren leaned back in the office chair Britney gives him a lap dance he’ll never forget.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

If you want to

I can be dirty too

I can spin you around

pick you up and go down

If you want to

I can be just like you

and do the dirty

things you do

 

Britney leans over to the control boards, OVER Darren, that tantalizing chest of hers just a couple of inches from his face. (Right after ’Sign’ we do a quick cut to Britney pushing buttons, then a quick cut to the panel, volume levels jumping up and down, matching the music)

Soundboard

LYRICS

Why don’t you

tell me your sign

 

She slowly comes back down into Darren’s frame…

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I hear we’re

two of a kind

Scorpio

I’ve been told

 

Until they’re face-to-face. (All the while, he’s singing)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

You’re my most

compatible ride

 

Quick shot of Brittany yanking Darren up from the chair by the collar.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Ooh

 

She turns around to camera (now both are facing it, he at her back) and doesn’t stop with the fluid movement, bending all the way over. (Her face passes directly in front of camera as she does the bend over, ending on that perfect shot of him at her back)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Let me tell you again

 

Quick zoom over the backside of Brittany into a tight close-up of Darren, doing quick in and out JumpCuts on his close-up with each ‘Pop’)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

You make me wanna pop

Pop Pop Pop Pop

 

Extreme close-up of Darren, head tilted to the side.

LYRICS

(singing)

Jack into the movie

inside my brain

 

Quick zoom out over Britney’s backside.

 

Her head whips from one side to the other on each ‘stop’.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I never want to stop

Stop Stop Stop Stop

 

Back to an extreme close-up of Darren, head tilted to the side.

D!

LYRICS

(singing)

Ooh

Could you do that again?

With Darren standing inside the doorway of the soundproof room Britney shoves him inside.

With each ‘Bam’ a quick shot of Brit’s hands pushing against Darren’s chest, shoving him inside the small room.

 

LYRICS

You make me want to Bam

Bam Bam Bam Bam

 

Quick shot of the blinds coming down.

 

LYRICS

Shut the blinds

 

Quick shot of the door SLAMMING SHUT. (From the outside)

 

LYRICS

Baby let the door slam

 

Extreme close-up on Darren as he looks up, camera following as it stays on him.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Intergalactic

Super bombastic

 

He’s looking straight up, directly into it, as it pulls up up and away. (Yes, the small room will have to have fall-away walls/ceiling)

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Go from the top

Baby don’t ever stop

‘Till I tell you to

 

Britney’s long golden locks flowing down strands at a time. (Slo-Mo)

 

LYRICS

Ooh

 

Extreme close-up, Darren enjoying.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Yeah Yeah Yeah

 

His hand runs through her hair and grasps her head.

 

LYRICS

Ooh

 

Extreme close-up of Darren’s lips.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Could you do that again?

 

Overwhelmed, his lips fold in, tightly pressed against one another.

 

LYRICS

Yeah…

 

Moments Later…

 

Darren in the small booth singing into the recording mic.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

If you want to

 

Britney’s hands come in from around his neck, caressing his shoulders.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I can be dirty too

 

They make their way up his neck…

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I can spend you around

pick you up

 

Before heading straight down.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

even go down

 

Close-up as he sings, trying to hold back his reaction to what she’s doing down there.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

If you want to

I can be just like you

and be dirty too

Ah Ah Ah

Yeah Yeah Yeah

 

As he sings into the mic Britney (still at his back) comes up and lip-synch’s the lyrics into his ear.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Scorpio

I’ve been told

you’re my most compatible ride

 

Extreme close-up of Darren’s lips.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Fade to black

 

Extreme close-up – the zipper on the side of Brittany’s latex pants starts to come down.

 

LYRICS

Commercial break

 

The worded lyrics appear in white against black background.

 

LYRICS

This is where

the censor kicks in

 

Tilted down on Darren from a slightly high angle we quickly push down and into a close-up.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Hey…

 

From the back Britney rips Darren’s shirt half off.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

I think you better

close your eyes

block your ears

 

He turns around to her.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

this could be the

jam of the year

 

Extreme close-up of his lips.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

Ooh

Could you do that again?

 

Extreme close-up of Britney’s latex top being pulled down off her shoulder.

 

LYRICS

Again…

Extreme close-up of Darren’s hungry eyes.

 

LYRICS

Again…

 

Extreme close-up of Brit’s eyes, looking up at him.

 

LYRICS

Uh-huh

Yeah

 

Extreme close-up, she licks her lips.

 

LYRICS

Yeah Yeah Yeah…

 

Quick multiple shots of extreme close-ups:

 

Their hands bracing against the interior walls of the booth.

 

A little skin here and there.

 

Clothes being thrown about.

 

The interior walls of the booth jolting and shaking.

From outside the booth, one of the blinds in the window is still open.

Darren peeks out.

Darren Hayes

 

LYRICS

Sorry…

 

He closes it and we fall back to reveal the shot is on a Jumbotron.

Falling back even more, we see that the whole setting is on a stage. Recording booth, studio and all. (Another Jumbotron on the other side of the stage)

Continuing with the fall back we realize this has all been a stage show, the cheering audience now coming in through lower frame.

 

FADE OUT:

 

Note: Darren originally wrote this song for Britney, but when she didn’t snatch it up he recorded it himself.
