Drew Barrymore's music video for Best Coast's track "Our Deal," which we saw a short preview of last week, premiered today on MTV (go here for more on how the collaboration came together).
Barrymore's short film pits two gangs against one another -- think "Romeo and Juliet," but in a "Rebel Without a Cause" outfit. The Day Trotters and the Night Creepers are competing graffiti artists -- one group tags by day, the other by night. When their worlds collide, bad things happen.
The film features a whole host of young Hollywood stars, and it's easy to envision them as future Hollywood heavyweights -- Chloe Moretz from "Kick-Ass," Miranda Cosgrove, from "iCarly," Alia Shawkat aka Maeby from "Arrested Development," and Tyler Posey from "Teen Wolf."
Moretz and Posey play the romantic leads, who fall in love at first sight. But it's never that easy, is it? Especially when you're in rivaling graffiti gangs. The film moves softly between scenes that key you into the story -- it's not hard to catch on, since it's a story as old as time, and there are text aids to help you along the way. But it's a sweet retelling, and a pretty song to boot.
