The video, which features actress Kat Dennings (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) in the lead female role playing opposite Bob Schneider, is an ironic romantic encounter between two people who represent different lifestyles, described simply as digital and analog. It was filmed in Austin, Texas; hometown to both Schneider and Rodriguez.
In addition to the video, Rodriguez has two highly anticipated films set for release in the coming months. Predators, starring Adrien Brody, Topher Grace and Laurence Fishburne, will be released in theaters on July 3rd, followed by Machete on September 3rd, starring Danny Trejo, Robert DeNiro, Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan.
