Here's What The 'Leave Britney Alone' Guy Looks Like Now

Here's What The 'Leave Britney Alone' Guy Looks Like Now

The video went viral back in 2007.

This year we will celebrate a special anniversary. No, no, not the 100th anniversary of the abdication of Tsar Nicolas II. I mean, we are celebrating that, too, of course, but I mean, 10 years since Chris 'Leave Britney Alone' Crocker was unleashed on the world.

What you need to take into account to really appreciate this story is that back in the good ol' days of 2007 it was actually quite difficult to go viral. We didn't spend anything like as much time online, social media was in its infancy, most phones didn't come with internet connection and 4G was merely a dream. Dammit Daniel certainly wouldn't have cut it back in oh seven, no way.

Chris Crocker, though, he smashed it.

I know you're all dying to see it, so here it is again.

He made the video in response to the savaging Britney got in the press after her comeback performance at the 2007 MTV Video Music awards. Britney had a rough year prior to the performance and had been dealing with a divorce, battling drug addiction and losing custody of her children.

He addressed the tough time she'd been having in the video, saying: "She lost her aunt, she went through a divorce, she had two kids, her husband turned out to be a user and a cheater, and now she's going through a custody battle."

Like Britney, though, our man Chris has moved on. He now looks very different from the bleach blond man with the horrible eyeliner we've just seen in that video.

Despite looking like a completely different person Chris is still more than happy to take the piss out of his 2007 self, regularly posting throwbacks like this:

There's nothing to eat in this house

People still seem to love him, too, if his 610, 000 Instagram followers are anything to go by.
