Britney Spears Debuts Video for 'Hold It Against Me'

02/17/2011 AT 10:00 PM EST


The wait is over!

The video for Britney Spears's new single, "Hold It Against Me," premiered Thursday night at 9:55 p.m. ET on MTV and on the Web.

And Britney fans should be pleased! The pop star looks as delicious as ever as she writhes around futuristic settings in microscopic shorts and red, sequined shoulder pads.

The best part of the video, which was directed by Jonas Akerlund, is a full-action fight sequence with edgy camera work against jumpy bass riffs. (The worst part is all the product placement!)

Close to the end of the video, Britney whips her long, blond hair back and forth and beats herself up until collapsing in a giant wedding dress while colors shoot out of her fingernails.

"Hold It Against Me" will be on Spears's upcoming album, Femme Fatale.

Lady Gaga better bring it.
