The video, which features Spears in a red-latex catsuit, was directed by Nigel Dick, who helmed several of Britney's early promos, including the one for "…Baby One More Time
." He recalled that the pitch Spears gave him had one particular specification. "'I want to be in a red jumpsuit. I want to have a really cute spaceman, but there can't be any rockets,'" Dick said. "There was another catsuit, actually, which was fantastic, which I loved, and the night before, I was told that Britney hired this guy that worked with Michael Jackson, and so we're going to use that catsuit. So that's the catsuit."
