As the clock struck midnight on the East Coast, Britney Spears released the music video to one of her favorite songs from her Femme Fatale album, in stores now.

The Criminal music video, available for purchase on iTunes, opens with Britney playing a damsel in distress at a lavish party. The pop star is struck by her seemingly promiscuous boyfriend, but is soon saved by her real-life boyfriend Jason Trawick.

As it turns out, Britney's savior is far from squeaky-clean as the two head on a crime spree that ends in a blaze of glory.

According to MTV, Britney shot the video in London prior to launching her European part of her Femme Fatale tour last month.
