Airline shows Britney Spears how 'Toxic' air travel really is

With their video tribute to the pop star's catchy hit, El Al Airlines flight attendants have a little fun on the job.

The Princess of Pop is getting a royal welcome – from about 40,000 feet in the air.

Israel-based El Al Airlines created the above "Toxic" video as a tribute to Britney Spears, who's coming to perform in the country on July 3. The video stars actual El Al flight attendants, who clearly came to work that day with a lighthearted sense of humor and a few sassy dance moves.

Spears, who burst onto the scene with mega-hit "Baby One More Time" at the tender age of 16, is experiencing somewhat of a career renaissance. She's got a standing residency in Las Vegas as well as an international tour, which includes stops in Japan and the Philippines in addition to Israel.

And speaking of Israel, her popularity is so massive there that the entire country decided to postpone a primary election so that fans wouldn't have to miss her show.

So clearly no one should be writing off the 35-year-old who was a star of the sugary pop era of the late '90s. Spears is still attracting massive crowds, and the original "Toxic" video has garnered more than 265 million views.

You might even say she's stronger than yesterday.
