Pop Punk High

Set at a fictional high school during the 2003 academic year (when the music of Green Day, blink-182, and Sum 41 were all the rage), this wildly comical and stridently raunchy story revolves around Derek, a “needle-dick poser” who dreams of being the cool guy.

Pop Punk High

Set at a fictional high school during the 2003 academic year (when the music of Green Day, blink-182, and Sum 41 were all the rage), this wildly comical and stridently raunchy story revolves around Derek, a “needle-dick poser” who dreams of being the cool guy. It all becomes possible with an aerosol can of AXE Body Spray stolen from the office of the principal, which conjures the “ghost-slash-genie” of pop-punk icon Avril Lavigne, who grants him three wishes. There is one condition: Derek must find Lavigne’s killer and doppelgänger, with the help of his best friend and class valedictorian, Tib, to release Avril from eternal confinement in the can.
