The music video for Pretty Girls was directed by Azalea and Cameron Duddy and was released on May 13, 2015. It continues a cult movie related focus for Azalea's music videos, her previous year's single "Fancy" paid homage to the '90s teen film Clueless and "Black Widow" to the Kill Bill films. The clip is a homage to the 1988 film, Earth Girls Are Easy, directed by Julien Temple and starring Geena Davis. It therefore is heavily based on '80s fashion and technology as well as the loose plot of the film. The video begins with Spears reclining poolside filing her nails with the health and wellness supplement MateFit. visible. Suddenly, an alien Iggy Azalea crash lands into the pool. Spears then proceeds to give Azalea a new makeover.
Two women dress up in '80s fashion and drive in a bright yellow jeep to a car wash, where Spears and backup dancers break into dance. Meanwhile, Azalea's alien powers cause a television to explode, water to turn pink and an ATM to begin shooting cash, which Spears dances around. Soon, two women hop into a convertible with Spears' friends, where Azalea turns Spears' retro handheld telephone into a Samsung Galaxy S6. Nightfall arrives and two women head to a club where Azalea raps and Spears and dancers choreograph a synchronized dance break. Suddenly, the nightclub begins to shake and an unseen force proceeds to abduct Azalea and Spears, to the latter's delight. The screen fades black before two women appear laughing and doing arm movements in the yellow jeep and the credits roll.
It became Britney's fastest video to reach 100 million views on YouTube, but it also became the video with most dislikes.
