If you follow the Marine Corps and use the Internet, you’ve no doubt seen the epic video of Marines in Afghanistan lip-syncing the Britney Spears song, “Hold it Against Me.”
In April, Battle Rattle profiled the Marines behind the video. They were 19 performers in it, all members of Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 466 (Reinforced), of MCAS New River, N.C., or HMLA-169, an attack squadron out of Camp Pendleton, Calif.
It’s no-brainer good publicity for Spears to do this. Still, you can’t tell me there weren’t at least a few Marines in the crowd above thrilled to be there.
