Video: Drew Barrymore Directs Best Coast's "Our Deal"

Surf pop band Best Coast has debuted the music video for "Our Deal", the latest edition to MTV's "Supervideo" series.  Directed by Drew Barrymore and starring a wide variety of up-and-coming

Hollywood names -- Chloe Moretz of Kick-Ass, Tyler Posey of Teen

Wolf, Donald Glover, Alia Shawkat, and Miranda Cosgrove -- the video

is more like a short art film.

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.
