Toyah & Robert hit it (baby) one more time with their Sunday Lunch outing which this weekend is a love letter to Britney Spears,” reads the description of the video. There’s also bonus footage so keep watching right until the end!”

Clearly Toxic is popular among rock and metal fans, as in a 2019 interview with Kerrang!, Lacuna Coil vocalist Cristina Scabbia revealed that she’d like to tackle the Britney classic.

I like the idea of covering songs that aren’t metal – it doesn’t make much sense to me otherwise,” she said. I like the idea of taking something completely different, like Britney Spears, and doing it the Lacuna Coil way. Toxic is a pretty cool song and has some interesting vocal lines.”
