Cruising down the highway in a convertible with her welterweight hunk, Katy Perry‘s “Teenage Dream” video kicks off in true California cool fashion. With friends they stop off at the beach, stripping down to their bathing suits. There isn’t much true action here. It’s more like a chilled out video diary, chronicling an amazing day, and culminating in a passionate one-on-one romp with her man. Visually, the clip was wonderfully shot with a graying effect that dulls down what otherwise would’ve been the cliche sunny day in L.A. video we see all the time. Check out the video after the jump.

What is/was your teenage dream? Does it look anything like Perry’s video?
