Former (onscreen) lovers and best-friends-forever Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt put together a little ditty just in time for new years: a cover of Nancy Wilson’s “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” with both nerd-favorites plucking away and singing strong. Well, Zooey anyway. Levitt’s falsetto is a bit muted, but who doesn’t love this guy?
Though this cute clip may have you popping in your 500 Days of Summer DVDs tonight, only to carefully scrutinize the couple’s onscreen chemistry, this video doesn’t seem to be a couple’s debut, rather a lazy Thursday afternoon jam-sesh between two good buds. So sayeth Zooey:
“When we did ’500 Days of Summer’ [eight] years later, we spent every lunch hour dancing to Marvin Gaye in the hair and make up trailer; we had loads of fun. I hope to do a thousand more movies with him, because he’s simply the best.”
So despite Deschanel’s recent split, these two seem more like gal-pals than anything else. Let it go, kids.
Still, it’s a sweet clip in that whimsical way that we all expect from Zooey. Oh heck, here’s the video. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
