Drew Barrymore’s Music Video for Best Coast Premieres (Video)
A little bit Romeo and Juliet combined with a little bit of Grease and a dash of Rebel Without a Cause, and you’ve got Drew Barrymore’s music video for Best Coast’s song “Our Deal.”
The video, which premiered on MTV on Tuesday, pits two rival graffiti gangs -- the Day Trotters and the Night Creepers -- against each other on the streets of Los Angeles.
Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), and Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) play star-crossed lovers from rival gangs. Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) also make appearances in the video.
When violence breaks out between the gangs, the young lovers are caught between love and family in a tale as old as time.
Barrymore got involved in the project after she met Best Coast at a show at the Music Box.
"She ended up coming backstage and we hung out, and she's like the nicest, most down-to-earth person I've ever met,” Best Coast frontwoman Bethany Cosentino said of Barrymore in an interview with Rolling Stone.
Best Coast’s video is a part of MTV’s “Supervideo” franchise, which brings together well-known actors, acclaimed directors, and the music of MTV’s buzz bands. The first two videos included Academy Award nominated actress Anna Kendrick (Twilight) in LCD Soundsytem’s “Pow Pow” and rising stars Dave Franco and Emma Roberts in the new buzz band Cults’ video for “Go Outside.”
