Music Video by Keith Urban performing Long Hot Summer. The video, directed by Trey Fanjo, was shot in Malibu, Ca.
Manufactured by Capitol Records Nashville, 3322 West End Avenue, 11th Floor, Nashville, TN 37203
At the beginning of the video we see Summer Glau walking down the 500 block of South Broadway in Los Angeles. A friend picks her up in a blue convertible on South Broadway near the intersection of Sixth Street and they drive down to the beach at Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, California. It seems like Summer had a blast shooting this video.
In the music video, Keith Urban and his band are performing on the sand, where the couple meet up later on in the video.
The two lovers are played by Summer Glau and Alexander Rodriguez (actor/model appeared in Hot 'n' Cold by Katy Perry). Alex plays a surfer who's in love with Summer, who has come and met him at the beach with a friend, which is pretty far away, so a road trip is added in as well. It looks like they plan on having a party since there is quite a few of them, and obviously the connection is still there. A basic and simplistic narrative, that captures you no matter what.

I think the twitter response is proving to the contrary.
I think it is a good idea just to keep her name out of the articles for now because of the trolls. I don't think the people watching the video will like her more or less if they are told her name first.
And the people who do like her a lot will google it.

I have made a little research and Summer Glau is never mentioned in the articles dedicated to the clip; is it not possible to love country and scifi at the same time?
Edit : one site has maybe recognized Summer, though i'm not 100% sure.

Still, i'm suprised; i can understand that the blond girl or the beach boy are not mentioned because they're anonymous models.
Do you really think people watching this clip will ask who this girl is : they will just think she's another model imo.

Good for career.
Summer looks gorgeous and is sure to peak interest in CMT viewers and at places that play the video.
I am not a big fan of pop music but I think this is a good song for one that seems like it was dedicated to her. Those songs are hard to write.
I like that Last Days of Summer song that was fan made. I'm In Love With a Terminator is pretty cool too. But Keith has millions of fans... of course this is good.
