After days of anticipation, Britney Spears new video has finally arrived, being released overnight in America, while international fans are already calling the video nothing short of amazing.

The song, which is third from her current album Femme Fatale, has climbed the charts in recent weeks and is picking up radio airplay across the nation, hinting that it will be another #1 hit for the 29-year-old pop star.

In the video, her studded biker jacket, combat boots, and pink-streaked hair make for a contrasting but super-cute costume. With the swing of a CGI’d microphone, Britney makes waste of pesky paparazzi with slow motion effects reminiscent of “The Matrix.” Actor Guillermo Díaz also stars in the video as her knight in shining armor (or is he?).

The video was directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, who though has worked with Ke$ha and The Black Keys, was challenged by working with an artist of Britney’s caliber. He exclusively spoke to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” about where the facts and figures came from during the cyborg paparazzi scene.

“Where it says [Britney] chews on ice and does 1,000 sit-ups a day, that is actually totally true,” revealed Chris. “I think it’s like a spaced out thing — I don’t think it’s 1,000 in a row and she chews on ice.”
