The music video for "Did It Again" was filmed in September 2009 and was directed by Sophie Muller, who had previously worked with Shakira on the music video for "Hips Don't Lie". Shakira cited the paintings of British painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema, which detailed scenes of women in Turkish bathrooms, as an inspiration behind the video. After Shakira was shown a "Icelandic contemporary dance piece" by a friend, she and Muller enlisted Icelandic choreographer Katrin Hall to choreograph the dance sequences in the video. When asked of the inspiration behind the music video for "Did It Again", Shakira said that she and Muller "brought all these pieces — Moroccan women twirling and turning their heads, and the poetry from Alma-Tadema's paintings, plus this Icelandic contemporary dance piece — and we mixed all these pieces together for the video." The videos for both the original English version and the Spanish translation were released on 30 October 2009. A video for the remix version of the song, featuring American rapper Kid Cudi, debuted later in December 2009. The video starts with Shakira sitting in a steam filled bath house surrounded by other women facing her, all clad in white. The next scene shows a group of female Korean drummers performing the Korean "Three Drum Dance". Shakira appears in a bedroom wearing black lingerie and begins fighting her partner (played by dancer Daniel "Cloud" Campos ) in a martial arts inspired dance routine and ultimately manages to defeat him. Scenes of Shakira dancing wearing a black and golden outfit follow. Near the end of the video, all the previous scenes are rapidly interspersed. The version featuring Kid Cudi, features additional scenes of the rapper.
The music video received generally positive reviews from critics. Tanner Stransky from Entertainment Weekly reviewed the video positively, and said that the video was a "fun feat to watch her (Shakira) pull off". Story Gilmore from Neon Limelight called the fight between Shakira and her partner an "angry yet passion filled tussle" and the video a "smoking hot winner". Elena Gorgan from Softpedia, praised Shakira's dance moves and noted that Shakira "comes very close to perfection in terms of artistic dancing".
