Federline pokes fun at his career
Kevin Federline
Federline was married to Britney Spears for two years
Britney Spears' estranged husband, Kevin Federline is to appear in a US television advert making fun of his much-mocked music career.

The advert shows 28-year-old 'K-Fed' rapping in a music video, which eventually turns out to be a daydream.

Speaking to USA Today he said: "I felt that it was a good time to come out and make fun of myself."

The wannabe rapper sold only 6,500 copies of his debut album, Playing with Fire, in the first week of its release.

The insurance advert will be shown during the Super Bowl - US TV's highest-rated show, and the scene of Janet Jackson's notorious 'wardrobe malfunction' in 2004.

"I try not to take myself too seriously," Federline told USA Today.

The backing dancer-turned-rapper, who split from Spears in November after two years of marriage, revealed he is "changing a lot of things in my life".

"Just be ready for me in 2007," he said.

Court papers filed in November revealed that Federline plans to fight Spears for sole custody of their two children.
