"How Many Licks" is the second single from Kim's sophmore album 'Notorious K.I.M.'. The single was actually voted on by fans on Kim's official website and was released mid-August of 2000. Sisqo was featured on the song, but unfortunately due to label disagreements involving Def Soul, he was not allowed to appear in the video, so Kim had to go solo.
The premise of the video is quite unique, which is the main appeal to it. Kim is labelled as an anotomally correct and fully edible doll. We get see the production of different versions, including Candy Kim, Pin-Up Kim and Nightrider Kim.
This is possibly one of my favorite Kim videos, she actually put a lot of thought and effort into it. Each verse is done by a different Kim and she follows the storyline of the song very closely, which makes for an excellent viewing experience. Kim is quite possibly the hottest I have ever seen her in this video. The choreography is on point and the whole video has a cartoony feel, which matches the song perfectly. There is nothing I would change about this video.
I think it was a good choice for a video, and as I said before it was the fan's choice. Unfortunately, the video didn't do as well as hoped and faded fairly quickly, still allowing Kim to reach platinum status though.
