The video follows a day in the life of Hollywood socialite Lucille, who takes her audience deep inside the world of high social status, the Sunset Strip, pole dancing, and the incredible fortunes and terrible falls the Hollywood lifestyle brings. Lucille's sensual appeal comes together with her incredible ability to illustrate what being a Hollywood Scenester is all about.
