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.
