WATCH: Chloe Moretz Gets Grease-y In New Drew Barrymore Video

14-year-old actress and LOVE cover girl Chloe Moretz has again stolen our hearts. This time the current It girl is showing off her acting chops in the Drew Barrymore-directed music video for Best Coast’s song “Our Deal”. The video, a timeless spin on Romeo and Juliet, features a slew of young stars including Miranda Cosgrove , Danny Glover, and Shailene Woodley all rocking some seriously eclectic duds.

Teen dream Tyler Posey stars as Lucky (a.k.a Romeo), a member of city gang The Day Trotters, with Moretz as his star-crossed lover and rival gang member, Veronica (a.k.a. Juliet). The video follows the ill-fated duo as they explore young love and face their inevitable tragic end.

So it’s a bit closer to the West Side Story take on Shakespeare’s classic — but Barrymore doesn’t want you thinking this story is set in the ’50s, or any other era for that matter. In fact, she wanted the vid to be completely un-time specific.

That’s made clear in the wild costumes in the video, which are a complete combination of greaser, grunge and rocker. Drew’s inspiration for the eclectic wardrobe? “A jean jacket,” the director says. “It totally transcends. It works in the ’50s, it was punk rock in the ’70s, it was grunge in the ’90s. I wanted to bring in that timeless quality.”

The song is great, the outfits are awesome, and we are officially obsessed.

Watch for yourself, below.
