What do U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan do when they have a little bit of spare time on their hands?

They cover Britney Spears, of course.

In this YouTube video, Marines in Afghanistan do their best impression of Spears as they lip-sync her single, ‘Hold It Against Me’ -- dance break included.


The platoon has also offered versions of Miley Cyrus’ ‘Party In the U.S.A.’ and Sean Kingston’s ‘Beautiful Girls.’

In a teaser video, the Marines announce they plan on covering Diddy-Dirty Money’s smash, ‘Coming Home’ -- appropriately pegged as their last video before they end their tour and return to the U.S.
