Britney Spears & Russell Brand Read Each Other's Naughty Minds In VMA Spot (VIDEO)

Britney Spears and Russell Brand did their best to ignore the sexual tension elephant in the room in a 2008 Video Music Awards spot, and now they're conveying their desire for one another telepathically in a promotion for this year's VMAs.

"Should I have played it up more when he was flirting with me last year?" Spears, poolside in a white bikini, asks herself. "I have to admit, there is something sexy about his dangerous ways."

Back in his hotel room, Brand can hear her lustful thoughts! "Britney," he thinks, hoping she can read his mind. "This is the voice of your mind. Go to Russell's hotel room and abandon yourself. Give yourself to him, Britney. Sleep with Russell!"

Brand's off-color monologue ruffled some feathers when he hosted the VMAs last year, but he will be back this year for a repeat performance live from NYC on Sunday, September 13.
