Charli XCX Heads Up a Girl Gang in Video for “You’re the One”

+

After a massive cataclysm of unknown origin devastates the planet, adolescent girls all over are left without parents or a family to support them, so they rally around an unlikely source for aid and comfort: pop singer and current V cover girl, Charli XCX. At the head of her motley band of little ladies, Charli roams the countryside righting wrongs, having adventures, and teaching her posse a little something about womanhood along the way. Also, they pop off and shoot a music video every now and then, like this clip for “You’re the One,” directed by Dawn Shadforth. That is what’s going on with this video, right? It’s some kind of teaser for a sci-fi pilot for Lifetime? This actually seems very promising. I’ve been waiting for something like this since Dark Angel went off the air. If somehow you’re not stirred by this amazing tale of survival and sisterhood, then here’s Bill Pullman’s speech at the end of Independence Day to get you in the fighting mood.
