Ah, Zooey Deschanel. How we all love you. And how we will all continue to love you.
In a clever marketing move, Zooey and (500) Days of Summer co-star Joseph Gorden-Levitt perform a dance routine as robber & bank teller (with dance moves more like they belong in Grease) to “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?” a track from her band with M. Ward, She & Him.
The video was directed by Marc Webb, who also made the film.
On USA Today, the two reveal a fun secret:
“Deschanel and Gordon-Levitt say they hope to team up repeatedly and have aspirations of being a regular screen couple, like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers or Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn.
They’re not a real couple, but they’re good at faking it.”
It’s almost too cute.
