Rock ‘n’ Roll has always been about rebellion. But now rock’s latest transforms an innocent first kiss into a lesbian make out and even includes throwing babies on the floor. (For reference, please turn to Avril Lavigne’s latest music video).
In the midst of Avril Lavigne’s new “Rock N Roll” video released August 20, the music halted for a make-out session – or, rather, a “first kiss” – between the pop star and “The Wonder Years” actress Danica McKellar. When their alcoholic dog dies in a car crash, the two weep in remembrance that “no one could lick his own balls quite like he could” and console one another by embracing.
The scene was inspired by ‘80s “The Wonder Years” show where two kids, Kevin and Winnie, share a kiss. Lagivne stole a line from the originally innocent encounter, narrating, “It was the first kiss for both of us. We never really talked about it afterward. But I think about the events of that day again and again and somehow I know that Winnie does too.” McKellar starred as Winnie Cooper on the show.
The pop song, which already reached 2.5 million views via YouTube, rung (ironically) with the message, “Let em know that we’re still rock ‘n’ roll!” by throwing “a middle finger to the sky.” The video took place in an apocalyptic time when, “The human race is dwindling. Shark attacks on land are on the rise. And the fate of Rock ‘n’ Roll is in jeopardy.”
The savior (aka Lavigne) appeared as a self-described, “mother f-cking princess,” who fought all things evil thrown in her way by a Darth-Vader-like enemy. That included lobsters … and babies. When her adversary ripped a realistic looking baby doll from his mother’s arms and threw him at Lavigne, she countered not by catching him, but by bashing him in the head with a cooking pan.
The Huffington Post detailed the song as “one part cell phone commercial [Sony’s big break!] and one part tribute to the 1995 classic ‘Tank Girl.’” Apparently, that wasn’t enough of an appeal for HuffPo concluded, “If rock ‘n' roll is dead, this isn't doing anything to revive it.”
