Video Review: Gayle “abcdefu”

On a scarlet red screen, a message reads: “me and my friends visit my ex’s house :)” Gayle carries her video camera and films one of her friends, a 16-year-old girl in the parking lot. A 17-year-old man steers the wheel as he drives. She sits in the backseat with the 16-year-old girl and 17-year-old girl.

She and her friends lean against her car in the parking lot. The 17-year-old boy parks in a driveway. She leads her friends to the front door and finds the key underneath the welcome mat. The 16-year-old girl films her as she walks into her ex’s house. She and her friends walk up their staircase.

She gives some of her friends a dress and a skirt. Her friend films her as she jumps on the bed. They have a pillow fight. She tips over the trophies on a table. They mix sugar, oil, marshmallows and other indgridents into a pan. She places it in the oven. They frost the cakes and have a food fight and get into the shower to clean off.

Rating: 0/5

An 18-year-old girl waves to Gayle and motions for her to sit with them. Gayle says she has a film she wants to show her. The 18-year-old girl peers into the camera and says, “oh my god.” She asks the 18-year-old if she likes the 16-year-old’s girl new skirt. The 16-year-old girl does a runway strut.

Her ex-boyfriend turns to her, saying “what did you do?” She shrugs and giggles to the 18-year-old girl. He approaches the table and says she had no right. She rolls her eyes and says she’ll give it back. The 16-year-old girl takes it off, tearing it and hands it to him. Her ex-boyfriend curses at them. The manager taps him on the shoulder and escorts him out.
