Spears sweetly obliged and was spotted chatting with him briefly.
Danny McBride and his friends took over a VIP table on the dance floor and he was surprised with a cake in the shape of a castle from Gimme Some Sugar. Getting on the mic, McBride said, “Gonna keep this short cause I’m drunk. Go see Your Highness,” and then proceeded to entertain the crowd with a dirty joke. Later in the night McBride and Craig Robinson from The Office hopped into the DJ booth and rapped for the crowd.
