Britney Spears’s last few videos — particularly the joyfully silly clip for “I Wanna Go” — more than make up for the travesty that was the pop star’s video for “Gimme More”, her lead single from Blackout. The stripper concept was a poor choice, the barely-there outfits were ill-fitting, the “choreography” was a joke, the editing was sloppy… and now we get more of it! A new cut with additional footage surfaced online, showing us scenes of Brit off the pole and into the streets. Compare both videos below.
First, here’s the version you’ve already seen:
Now here’s the newly surfaced alternate cut:
They couldn’t have added a few dozen more shots of her ass? Because we could definitely use a few more.
Basically, it looks as though the editors cut out only cut out a few scenes from the final product — Britney strutting down the street in an unflattering outfit, Britney laying down in a zebra-print bed in an unflattering outfit while a cat hangs out with her, Britney going topless while working the poll — and added one new element: blonde Britney watching herself amateurly shimmy. Neither the deleted nor added parts add or subject anything from the experience. This video was kind of doomed no matter how it was edited together.
The song, however, is still pretty great.
