We don’t throw the word “super” around all the time, but when your video is directed by Drew Barrymore and features Miranda Cosgrove, Chloë Moretz, Donald Glover, Shailene Woodley, Alia Shawkat and “Teen Wolf“’s Tyler Posey, we think it’s deserved. Check out the exclusive premiere of MTV’s new “Supervideo,” set to Best Coast’s “Our Deal” below.
“Two Gangs. One ruled the streets by day. The other by night.” So begins the mini-movie channeling the rival gangs of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” video and West Side Story’s Tony and Maria. Here’s the CliffsNotes version: Moretz plays Veronica, a member of the Night Creepers, who falls for Lucky (Posey), a member of the Night Creepers’ arch nemesis, Day Trotters. As their respective gangs continually feud, the two fall in love and Veronica asks Lucky to run away with her. He declines. Or does he? The video climaxes with one tragic punch that would win the VMA for “Best Irony in a Music Video” (new category alert, execs). You’re going to need pictures of unicorns and puppies to counteract your emotions at the end of this one. You’re welcome.
When you’re finished checking out the video, see our behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with all the video’s major players. And admit it: Any video with its own “Graffiti Coordinator” onsite has to be cool, right?
