Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt team for New Year's tune

Zooey and Joseph
If "500 Days of Summer" wasn't enough cute for you, tune into this YouTube video that was posted earlier today by Zooey Deschanel and her longtime friend Joseph Gordon-Levitt on her HelloGiggles.

The ever-adorable Deschanel fittingly wears a sparkling tiara while dishing up an old-fashioned version of Nancy Wilson's "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" Gordon-Levitt backs her up on guitar, and while he may not have the musical chops of his "She & Him" counterpart, he shows off his shy falsetto.

Watch the clip below:

 

Decshanel noted on HelloGiggles that the two first bonded 12 years ago on the set of the movie "Manic" after discovering they both liked singers like Nina Simone and Harry Nilsson.

"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," wrote Deschanel before adding: "I hope to do a thousand more movies with him, because he’s simply the best."

He also makes a good Nancy Spungen to Zooey's Sid Vicious.
