Jun 5, 2006  •  Post A Comment

TelevisionWeek is trawling video-sharing Web sites to find the hottest clips spreading on the Internet.

The setup: First Britney Spears was photographed driving with her 8-month-old child, Sean Preston, in her lap, then later she was shot driving with the child in a car seat facing the wrong direction. The most recent Britney child-seemingly-in-jeopardy scandal is a paparazzi video that shows her leaving the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New York, carrying a soft drink in one hand, young Sean in the other and then almost-but not quite-dropping the child while salvaging the soda. The tumble is averted by a fast-acting bodyguard. A bystander said it best: “Be careful!”

The source: Paparazzi video of Spears leaving the Ritz-Carlton first hit the Internet on May 18.

The hits: There are multiple versions of this video on several video-sharing services and the clip has been viewed 500,000 times on iFilm alone.
