Jonas Akerlund – “Hold It Against Me” music video

My tolerance for “pop music” has certainly waned over the years, but when famed director Jonas Akerlund decides to create a new music video, my ears and eyes certainly perk up. His newest, for Britney Spears“Hold It Against Me” is nothing short of a technical marvel. A meta-vanity “shoot within a shoot” its scenes simultaneously reminded me of movies like Blade Runner and Brazil and yet was capable of forming a wholly unique world for the performances. Towering apocalyptic ramshackle video silos, spurting paint veins, dueling Britneys, and plenty of seizure worthy editing give the viewer a fly-on-the-wall style vantage point to attempt to soak in all the bewildering visuals.

Enjoy the video and more screen captures after the jump.
