The new Best Coast single “Our Deal” is getting a little help from celebrity notoriety, the LA-based 60’s girl-group inspired outfit enlisted Drew Barrymore to direct “Our Deal.”
The video features Let Me In‘s Chloë Moretz and cameos from Miranda Cosgrove, of cheesy pop fame and Alia Shawkat, who starred in Whip It with Barrymore.
Veronica aka Moretz’s love interest is played by Tyler Poser, star of MTV’s Teen Wolf, as a member of the “Day Trotter” gang and not the wolf-inspired “Night Creeper” gang. Wow he’s really branching out as an actor. Cough cough.
Watch the extended version on MTV, HERE. (It’s actually a pretty darn good song and music video, by today’s video standards anyway)
The video combines any and all gang movies of the past, such as the 1979 cult classic The Warriors and also West Side Story. Except with neon high-tops, hair extensions, Urban Outfitters threads and puka necklaces, instead of spikes, tight white shirts and leather vests.
Oh and it’s a girl in a leather jacket and a GUY in a tanktop. See how the roles have reversed since the 60’s and 70’s? Clothing exchange. Voila.
