Britney's "Oops!" Video Minus Music Is Brilliant

by Kristie Rohwedder

Just when you thought you'd seen all of the outstanding Britney Spears parody videos the Internet has to offer, you stumble across something that proves you wrong: Mario Wienerroither's "Oops!... I Did It Again" Musicless Musicvideo hit the web on Monday, and I have yet to move on. I am not exaggerating when I say it is nothing short of brilliant. Wienerroither, who is a sound editor, took a scene from the iconic video, cut out the music entirely, and added some noisy latex catsuit sound effects. I know I sound like a broken record, but it really is perfect. "Oops!" is just one of many music videos that have been altered by Wienerroither; if you want to ensure that you live your best life, you should head over to his YouTube channel and check out the Musicless Musicvideo series right now.

After I put the “Oops!… I Did It Again” Musicless Musicvideo in my eyes at least 17 times, I had a hankering to watch some of Brit Brit's vids. And watch some Brit Brit's vids is what I did. But it was not any ol’ Britney Spears music video marathon. However, I quickly discovered that the power of the Musicless Musicvideo is strong; as I fired up hit video after hit video, I couldn’t help but imagine them without the songs that accompany them. And, according to my imagination, some of the scenes would be quite the hoot without music:

The chair scenes from “Stronger”

  • The sound of Spears jumping onto the chair
  • The sound of Spears leaning over in the chair and bracing herself
  • The sound of the chair clanging against the floor
  • The sound of the chair dragging across the floor

The bathroom scenes from "Piece of Me"

  • The sound of high-heeled shoes dancing on the tile floor
  • The sound of bracelets jangling
  • The sound of hair extensions swishing
  • The sound of water dripping from a faucet
  • The sound of a toilet running

The hammock scenes from "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know"

  • The sound of the ocean
  • The sound of the creaky hammock
  • The sound of dramatic sighs

The dancers beneath the dress scenes from "Hold It Against Me"

  • The sound of Britney’s gown rustling around
  • The sound of all of the electronic equipment buzzing
  • The sound of the dancers discussing how to get out from underneath Britney’s gown
  • The sound of the dancers shouting with glee once they finally escape Britney's gown

The basketball court scenes from "...Baby One More Time"

  • The sound of tennis shoes squeaking on the basketball court
  • The sound of light bulbs buzzing on and off
  • More shoe squeaking
  • More light bulb buzzing
  • So squeakySo buzzy
  • Squeak squeak squeak
  • Buzz buzz buzz

...Enough outta me. Here's the pro's majestic work:
