Directed by Rich Lee and homage of sorts to the b-movie classic Attack of the 50 Foot Woman , the grainy clip opens with Del Rey the Giant waking up in an aqueduct. She stretches, stands up and begins to stomp around Los Angeles, gently stepping over highways to avoid crushing cars like a peaceful Godzilla. As she dips her colossal foot in the waters of Venice Beach, she becomes part of a film that s teenagers are watching at a drive-in. A blonde woman also played by Del Rey gets ditched by her date, who wanders off with someone else.
