Centered around the young love of opposing L.A. gang members Moretz and
Posey, director Barrymore put her own fresh-faced "indie" spin on
the silver screen's classic theme of forbidden romance. The video's visual tale of two star-crossed lovers, switchblade knife fights, and use of 1950s garb channel such "gang" movies like The Warriors, Rumblefish, and West Side Story. In most action-packed videos, directors may have gone with a faster song, but for whatever reason, the dreamy imagery and vintage aesthetics make it work. After watching this video, I won't be surprised if we start seeing tweens running around town in pompadours, moto-jackets, and rolled-up jeans.
Peep the video for Best Coast's "Our Deal" after the jump.
