Video: Best Coast, “Our Deal” (Directed by Drew Barrymore)

MTV commissioned Drew Barrymore to direct the new Best Coast video for “Our Deal” as part of their Supervideo series. There’s a sidebar on their site about the project, which they say “gives unique filmmakers the opportunity and artistic license to create a multitude of music video formats.” Somebody wrote that, and somebody thought Drew Barrymore was the girl for the job. And they were right!!! Look how happy she and Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast are together! The actual video is super bizarre, sort of like Grease meets West Side Story: Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly) is in it for half a shot and so is the guy from Community, and at one point Alia Shawkat (Maeby from Arrested Development) spray paints “Death to Day Trotters” on the wall (???). Big budgets are awesome.

    i like how chloe moretz was left out of this little write up despite the fact that shes the star of the video. *shrugs*

    ^what they said. And i’m sure I saw Donald Glover/Childish Gambino.

    the teaser seemed promising but by the end it was like one of the ~darker~ boygirlconvos (you know the kind where the girl wakes up in the hospital after surgery looking for her boyfriend and her mom shows up all “didn’t they tell you whose heart you were receiving?” and tears ensue). Lurlene McDaniel could craft a better story.

    The girl from Secret Confessions of an American Teen was awful (even worse than iCarly girl) but that’s to be expected. I’ll go back to Halcali thx. “Giri Giri Surfrider” choreographed a better fight scene and the music has a beat you can really groove to. Down with bummer summers tbh.

    “Somebody wrote that, and somebody thought Drew Barrymore was the girl for the job.”

    i stopped there for a bit, popped some popcorn, said “awwwwwwwww here goes it’s time for Kenan & Kel”, and then the twist ending was that the next sentence was really positive LOL :-)

    i like this too

    Wow Alice, Shailene Woodley (star of the secret of the american teenager) can be a very fine actress with the good project, you will see that with the next Alexander Payne ‘The Descendants’ where she plays Clooney’s character rebel teenage daughter and even younger when she played a mormon on a Cold Case episode..ah and she is maybe one of the few good thing on the Secret of the…blabla teenager which is so awful that is golden in a “so bad it’s good” sort of vibe (just watch that as a satire while you smoke some good weed and you will see it is great
    Anyway nice video, Chloe Moretz has a beautiful presence on-screen, the boy is very cute, the end is heart-breaking, the song is beautiful, good job Drew.
