One of my favorite Britney music videos. :praisega_gaga_amazing_brilliant_show_stopping_showstopping_sunglasses_incredible_yas_Yes:

it's one of my least favorites :yesokay_britney_blush_blink: 

but it reminds me of when I was in middle school and MTV would play it every morning while I was having breakfast. Can't believe it's been 15 years already 👴

One of the worst videos for one of the best tracks.

It was such a disappointment. 

I would not have mind if some of the shots were used in the video. But it needed so much more than this. It’s so boring. 

I do love Gimme More so much. Maybe that’s why I’m so pissed it got such a ****ty video.

I love the grittiness of the video - I feel like it matched the rebellious, moody nature of the song and era. but when it came out, it was a stark contrast to her high budget videos and was panned. which is a shame because that was totally the point.

Agreed! Favorite song of hers but my least favorite video.

100%. It would be weird if the video was all glossy and polished.

another one of the "britney mysteries." still so confused by the leaked footage, the shots we saw of her on the street, etc. that never made it into the video. not to mention all the "leaked" info about the original funeral storyline and all that. still one of her best songs hands down and the "its britney *****" opening will forever be iconic.
