Watch The New Zooey Deschanel-Directed She & Him Music Vid!


ZDEmbedMix together some playful ‘60s dance moves, bright vintage frocks, and a brand-new She & Him tune — what do you get? Oh, just another reason to adore Zooey Deschanel (as if we needed one!). The New Girl star took her first crack at directing a music video for the indie duo’s Volume 3 single, “I Could’ve Been Your Girl,” and she completely blew it out of the park.

The retro-inspired vid features Zooey boogie-ing with her crew while crooning to M. Ward (guitarist and She & Him’s other half) as he attempts to nonchalantly sip coffee and read the paper. Shots of Zooey petting a wooden duck and hitting a beach ball highlight that goofy vibe we love her for, and totally put a smile on our beginning-of-the-week face.

Bonus: If you buy Volume 3 from HelloGiggles online shop Merge, you get free, too-cute nail decals. Just enter “NAILS” as the coupon code.

Below, the director's sweet debut. Bravo, Zooey!
