Miley Cyrus "We Can't Stop (director's cut)" (Diane Martel, dir.)

With the original version now in the VEVO Certified zone of over 100 million views, there's no harm in losing views to the Director's Cut that's been newly unleashed.

This time director Diane "Diamond" Martel gets a big title credit upfront — which is more than deserved — and all the product placements have been wisely severed off like a pesky ankle monitor, but it's the other changes that should grab your interest, since A/B'ing the original and this Director's Cut can serve as a lesson in how you can cut two very different videos from the same footage.

This is sexier, more salacious and a bit sillier — for example, a Karaoke segment, which takes up a prominent position — and presents a great What If issue, where you can imagine if this cut would have generated the same response and results as the official version.

Director Diane Martel Goes Shot By Shot on Miley Cyrus "We Can't Stop"

I like how we're studying the Miley Cyrus "We Can't Stop" video like it's the Zapruder film, or The Talmud. It's certainly more fun.

Rolling Stone has a nearly scene-by-scene recap of it with director Diane Martel, who shines a light on some overlooked elements in the video — the Smoke Dicks, for example — and some of the more prominent stunts, like the Hot Dog Piñata and French Fry Skull.

Diane Martel, director: It's like a giant, fucked-up selfie... We wanted the video to be full of blog-worthy moments, but it ended up being about Miley sharing herself with her audience in a crazed way. It's exhibitionistic, and she's absolutely taking the piss out of being in a pop video"

Also revealed: Miley likes taxidermy.
