In one scene, Avril and her friend find an evil bug-man in a restaurant hiding behind a mustache. He throws a baby at her, which she smashes in the face with a food tray. After momentarily being slowed down by a lobster left on the floor, the two heroines and their alcoholic dog chase down the bug-man and drunk-drive headfirst into a tree. The women lament the dog's untimely death and then make out. I swear to fucking god none of that was a joke.
Trust me, I watched it so many times that I was automatically added to her fan club.
I thought that was pretty weird (the car accident part), and started watching other videos of hers. Unbelievably, I discovered there are a solid handful of videos in which she crashes some kind of vehicle. In 2011's "What The Hell," Avril plays a sociopath who sleeps with some guy, kicks him out, and then leads him on a wild goose chase through the city. Or maybe he's just a huge creep for chasing her. Either way, they are both awful.
At one point, she Grand Theft Autos a taxi for a joyride, and then "parks" it by letting it casually roll into another car. So in 12 short years, the record industry's stance on auto theft apparently went from "You wouldn't download a car" to "Jacking a real one right in front of the owner, possibly destroying his livelihood in the process, is an attractive sign of a carefree and rebellious lifestyle."
"This confusing mixed message brought to you by Sony."
Going even further back in time, both the "Girlfriend" and the "Complicated" videos include a scene in which Avril crashes a fucking go kart head-on into a wall. (In both cases, she's playing some sort of rebellious teenager, which is really showing her acting chops.) This happens twice!
