It's worth noting that "Hold It Against Me" director Jonas Åkerlund also made the music video for Lady Gaga's "Telephone," which also featured a great deal of conspicuous product placement including a nod to Plenty of Fish.

In other Britney news, producer Dr. Luke has put a few brief teasers of his tracks from Spears' new album Femme Fatale on his SoundCloud page. The clips go by a bit too quickly to get a solid impression of the songs, but it sounds like we're in for some intense dance pop.
