The lead single from Jenny Lewis’s latest album, The Voyager, has a music video. And what we will never forget again is that Lewis, resident of Los Angeles and former child actor, has famous friends.

Oh, and also that it is probably not an accident that her song title is also the title of a gender-swapping comedy movie from the ’80s.

And so in “One of the Guys” Lewis gets by with a little help from her famous friends. She’s assembled a girl band that includes Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson. Then, as the counter argument to the song’s lyric, she dresses them all up in drag with some ungodly unfashionable details.

“The rat tail was all Annie,” Lewis, who directed the video, told GQ. “Deep character exploration. Her dude is a bit more Backstreet Boy than the rest. Melancholy Backstreet Boy is what I think she was going for — he really feels things deeply and break dances like a motherf—er.”
