Avril Lavigne kisses Danica McKellar in the name of 'Rock'

Avril Lavigne is obviously a fan of "The Wonder Years."

The newly re-married rocker invited actress Danica McKellar - a.k.a. Winnie from the iconic TV series - to appear in her new music video for the single "Rock N Roll."

And from the look of the five-minute clip, the two became pretty friendly on set.

The premise for the video (which could also double as an advertisement for the Sony Xperia) appears to pay homage to 1995's action comedy "Tank Girl."

In Lavigne's comic-strip mash-up, "the human race is dwindling. Shark attacks on land are on the rise. And the fate of rock 'n' roll is in jeopardy." The only thing that can save it is Avril in fatigues and a post-apocalyptic Winnie Cooper dressed for war.

In between taking on a masked villain, a lobster and something called a bearshark, Lavigne pauses for a makeout session in the car with Danica as a "Wonder Years"-esque narration sets the scene.

After the video was released this week, McKellar, 38, tweeted that her Canadian co-star wasn't half bad.

"Rock N Roll," from Lavigne's upcoming self-titled album, will be released on August 27.

    Come over to my house Danica and I will kiss you all day. Nothing more sensuous then two girls kissing. I may even suck on your tongue, gorgeous lady.

    Freaking hysterical! The Sony phone thing was a bit useless. How big are phones gonna get? It looked like she was putting an iPad up to her head. I guess pants manufacturers are gonna have to start making bigger pockets.

    Nobody cares. Maybe she can kiss the pizza delivery boy to see if she likes that too.

    As an open Lesbian for many years now I find these pop tarts who try to be 'edgy" kissing each other (girl/girl) not only offensive to me and the LGTB community, but pathetically unoriginal and devoid of any creativity. What a mess of a video!!!

    Avril is pretty cute for a snaggle tooth. But I'd prefer to mack on Winnie. Serious girl-crush material.

    the song is melodically flat, I guess she had to do something to get people to watch (and you know you're hurtin' when you have to inject profanity in your videos to account for your lack of talent), the girl is in need of a good songwriter to produce material for her. shame on cnn to be promoting this crap as entertainment.

      Idiot, she's been doing the same thing for years, YEARS! She also has been using profanity in her songs since day one. If you don't like her fine, but don't think for a moment that she's going to change.

    For the love of God, take down this site! I used to think CNN was above this type of gruel, but instead is guilty of contributing to the dumbing down and the demise of intelligence of the American public. Then again, what should I expect from the media outlet that is bringing back "Crossfire"? Shame on the talentless celebtrities that would do anything for attention (Avril, Gaga, all the Kardasians, etc, etc), CNN for contributing, and all of us for giving a crap.....

      "Talentless celebrities"? Danica McKellar has published in a noted physics journal (L Chayes, D McKellar, and B Winn, Percolation and Gibbs states multiplicity for ferromagnetic Ashkin–Teller models on Z2, J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 31 (1998) 9055–9063) as well as written four math books aimed at teenage girls. So there are two very different areas, acting and math/education/writing that she can make a living at - hardly talentless.

      @ Karl~ emily meant Avril. Obviously Danica isn't an attention-getting celebrity, she actually quite rocks, which is something Avril claims to do but I've never heard anything in her music that I would consider rock, or generally good. So yes, Avril is a talentless hack.

    I heard Bearshark attacks are on the rise this year. Is it due to climate change?

    My favorite musicians are Ailee and Crayon Pop, but I still enjoy the occasional English-singing talent now and again. Good ol' Avril making America Proud. Or is she Canadian? Who cares, that kiss was hot.

    Very interesting music-video !
    Loved Danica McKellar's part in the film. She's uber hot. She needs to be in more films.
    As for Billy Zane, I remember him from the Phantom movie some years back.

    God bless these beautiful women for what they've done to repair American / Canadian foreign relations. Now, let's do it again, ladies, only with fewer articles of clothing this time around.
