Best/Worst: Britney Spears' original video for "Gimme More"
After showing this to a friend he asked: "Did she direct that?" Oh, if only.
No, the video was directed by a man named Jake Sarfaty (speculated to be an Alan Smithee nom de plume) who, judging from his iMDB profile, wasn't quite qualified. The song, released in 2007, "Gimme More" was Britbrit's most successful single since "Baby One More Time" and, most lamentably, gave unto us this idiom: "It's Britney, bitch." Not surprisingly, this all happened in the midst of her darkest days.
The original video was universally reviled, but we think you'll find the original far, far worse. Good luck!
