Andy Says: Britney Spears' Video For 'Hold It Against Me' Is A Huge Disappointment!

Fri, February 18, 2011 10:01am EDT by 21 Comments

Are you as confused as I am after watching Brit’s new video? Watch it here & let me know your thoughts!

Britney Spears is back — not that she really went anywhere — with her highly anticipated music video for “Hold It Against Me.” But was all that hype worth the wait? I say no. It begins with a colorful astroid hitting the Earth and ends with some leather-clad gentlemen hitting the floor… with a whole lot of mixed concepts and disconnected themes in between.

To her credit, though, Britney still dances pretty well — I think. The camera refuses to stay on her for more than a second at a time, so I had trouble gauging her moves.

Then there’s the obnoxious product placement, which make it feels less like a music video and more like a 4-minute commercial — but a commercial for what, I’m not sure. Sony? Britney’s perfume? PlentyOfFish.com?

But while I dislike the video as a whole, I love that it features footage from “…Baby One More Time” and more of Britney’s old videos. I’m a firm believer that her next video should involve her recreating her most memorable looks (but maybe I’m just curious to see how she looks in the latex “Oops… I Did It Again” suit 11 years later.)

Watch the video below and tell me what YOU think of it:


Also, this is the final shot of the video:

A big question mark, which couldn’t be any more appropriate.

You are confused (author) because you did not understand the meaning behind the video, basically:

Britney in white top dances representing old britney
Britney in white dress and pretty make up rises (rising stardom/fame)
Britney has BLIND worshipers come out from under dress (public obsession with her, blindly worshiping an idol)
Britney has two pupils… two sides of her not in balance.
Britney goes down in white dress (beginning the decline)
Britney SNAPS! She goes crazy, shooting paint all over her old stuff, why? she is tarnishing her old image and Ruining her dress/perfect image.
She literally goes crazy all the while the amazing fight scene she is battling her worst enemy who is none other than herself.
THey all FALL down hard, but then get up, and now u see her dancing in BLACK, not the white top like the beginning. Its very symbolic.

I am not afraid to admit I have liked Britney since she first came out and have all the albums. I dont care what people think. lol. Now to me she is one hell of an entertainer and I always look forward to her new videos. This one was fun but not what I expected. I am not going to trash it cause it was colorful and diff. It just wasnt spectacular. Compared to her last albums videos, this one doesnt quite live up to her rep. I still like her though. Girls allowed to have a few not so great videos. Cant be perfect every time.

It is a stretch but it traces her life as a music star. You know: Her first appearance, rising fame, losing grip, battle with herself, back better then ever.

But I hated the ads to. BUT since I’m a Britney fan I loved it

I was expecting more dancing and a storyline to the song. The video did not seem to make the song any better. Plus, she just didnt look herself. She used to dance great and really show off but now she looks like she is just doing it robotically.

Her 15 minutes are up?
lol
She’s the best selling female of the decade, she made the Top 10 highest earners of the decade, the youngest on the list by a long shot, earning almost 500 million $$, one of the most followed people on twitter, highest grossing tour of 2009… need I go on?

She doesn’t need to go anywhere, whether you think so or not.
Before there was Gaga and Rihanna and Katy there was Britney, and she’s still selling out concerts all over the world.

This video was sadly inept. She really does need to just retire and focus on her children.
