Directed by Drew Barrymore and featuring Miranda Cosgrove, Chloe Moretz, Donald Glover, Shailene Woodley, Alia Shawkat and “Teen Wolf”‘s Tyler Posey, the video is a killer mix of West Side Story, Romeo & Juliet, The Warriors and other teen angsty gang classics. Here are the deets…
“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, 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.
But honestly? THE VIDEO IS ALL ABOUT THE HAIR. Chloe, Tyler and Miranda give great big, tousled, flowing hair. And Tyler’s tank tops ain’t too damn bad either. And a red denim jean jacket is your new summer must-have. See many blazingly fab behind-the-scenes photos from the set.
When you’re finished checking out the video, we’ve got some behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with all the video’s major players. And admit it: any video with its own “Graffiti Coordinator” on-site has to be cool, right?
And go behind the camera with director Drew Barrymore, Best Coast and the hot cast.
After the jump, watch a video interview with Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Posey. And get the dish on all the fresh fashion in “Our Deal.”

Is it wrong that I want to be Tyler Posey’s tank top?
