Much like we did when Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" single dropped, we have again taken to the internet to find the most hilarious, passionate and possibly nutty reactions to her "Hold It Against Me" video.
When you're looking for intense reactions to a Britney Spears song or video, you might as well not lollygag; you just go to the eye of the storm that is the fan community, Oh No They Didn't.
As you can imagine, initial reactions were...intense. Lots of words were written, lots of exclamation points were dropped. But, perhaps user "benrobot" best summed up the feelings of first responders with this gif...
Praise be. One thing that was especially interesting about the reactions to this video were that they were as much about the reactions as the video itself. User "hotlush" invoked some kind of manning of the ramparts (I think) with the comment, "Amazing, flawless, simply her best since WOMANIZER. Everyone stock up on wood cause the haters will be pressed against. March 29 couldn't come quicker."
But perhaps most interesting among all the ONTD comments were the theories about what "Hold It Against Me," like, really means, man. Take it away, "kimberlli":
"So this video was totally symbolizing her rise to fame with all her music videos playing as she was raised up in the dress, then when she fell back down, spraying the paint everywhere, and the joker smile was her breakdown and trying to act happy, and THAT AWESOME FIGHT SCENE was her fighting the bad parts about her away, and becoming herself again."
Over on the video side of things, fans definitely got busy posting their reactions to the clip. Here are our favorite two. The first from YouTube user, t0xicn3ssaxO.
And the second from user, RolyDelRio (and his dog) (OK mostly his dog):
