Three teasers down; a bunch more to go! On Friday, Britney Spears kicked off the countdown to her "Hold It Against Me" video premiere by giving fans a sneak peek at the video's space-age, Jonas Åkerlund-directed world. With only a week and a half until the clip drops, Brit is slowly getting fans pumped with more teases.
On Sunday, a day after appearing dressed in red in another teaser, Britney posted a nine-second clip of the video on YouTube. In it, the camera pans to multiple television monitors, as scenes from some of the singer's most iconic videos, including "Slave 4 U" and " ... Baby One More Time," are played. Other monitors show dance rehearsals, and "Toxic" is played before transitioning into "HIAM."
In the room, made up completely of television monitors, the top of Spears head appears — certainly an über-tease about what is still to come. Fans are then told there are 11 days left until the video's release. Along with the clip, Spears tweeted, "Just saw a new cut of #HIAM. SOOOO excited to share it! 11 days to go...."
Brian Friedman, who choreographed the video, recently told MTV News that the clip pushes all boundaries.
"Artistically, this video, I think, surpasses a lot of her other videos," he teased. "So many of her videos are iconic, though. You look at 'Toxic' and you look at 'Slave,' even 'Oops ... I Did It Again': People are gonna remember those videos forever. [In] ' ... Baby One More Time,' she made schoolgirl outfits relevant and so popular. This video is artistically a masterpiece, and I don't think that Britney has pushed the envelope in this way ever in any of her videos."
