Is Avril Lavigne stealing a page from Miley Cyrus? On Tuesday, Aug. 20, the 28-year-old singer released a new music video for her latest song “Rock N Roll” that features surreal scenes including a makeout session with Wonder Years alum Danica McKellar!
In June, Cyrus, 20, debuted her “We Can’t Stop” video which included her twerking in barely-there ensembles, grinding on a bed, dancing with giant teddy bears, spraying smoke out of a friend’s crotch and making out with a Barbie version of herself. Lavigne, 28, includes similarly wacky antics in her video — including a fight with a BearShark (an animal that’s a combination of a bear and a shark), an homage to Guns ‘N Roses’ “November Rain” video (playing a guitar and walking away from a church) and blasting Titanic star Billy Zane into space on a Segway.
But the real headline-making moment is Lavigne’s big kissing scene with McKellar, 38, who is reprising her beloved role as Winnie Cooper from the late-1980s comedy-drama series The Wonder Years. After their car crashes into a tree, the girls seek comfort from one another with a slow-motion, lingering kiss on the lips.
“It was the first kiss for both of us,” Lavigne says in a voice over, aping The Wonder Years‘ trademark narration (read by actor Daniel Stern). “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 tweeted Tuesday, “Never had so many people say they’re jealous of me! All I can say is . . . ‘I kissed a girl and I liked it . . .'”
