  6. 1)in this video Avril lavigne have the aparience of blode , punk girl but it seems a skater girl is a young girl and is a singer.
    2)Avril and her band playing a car above and when her finished destroy these car.They also play in a block of abandoned buildings
    3)the aparience of these block of buildings is the block of buildings abandoned,the walls are unpainted and have very little furniture for example a sofa.
    4)yes they have problems because the police appear.do we know if we see the video but also because it leaves a girl who is being detained by police
    5)I think avril lavigne flees police with his band and buelven the abandoned building to plan a new "concert" and steal a new car because the old have broken.

    Questions:
    -Describe Avril's physical appearance in the clip:
    She wears colourful baggy clothes, with a cap on his head. She’s blond and long-haired, and she looks like a punk (at the end) or rap (at the beginning) musician.
    -Where are Avril and her band playing?
    They are playing in the middle of the street, but in the beginning, they are in a flat.
    -What kind of place is it?
    It looks like an abandoned city, because the flat looks like an old building. After that, there are a lot of people when Avril is playing.
    -Do they have problems at the end of the clip? How do we know?
    Yes, they have problems because the police come to finish the concert, and all the people escape.
    -What do you think is going to happen next? Make up an alternative ending for the clip in no more than three lines.
    The police arrest all the people and Avril, and when they are in the prison, they continue with the concert, and after that they escape and come back to the flat that appears in the beginning.
