She & Him's new 'In the Sun' video: watch Zooey Deschanel schoolhouse rock

In the first official video from their upcoming She & Him Vol. 2, due March 23, the titular duo (a.k.a. singer/actress/Cabbie-wife Zooey Deschanel and indie-folk star M. Ward) go back to school like Rodney Dangerfield.

With its classroom choreography, meet-me-by-the-lockers eyes, and gymnasium hula-hooping, the clip is a kind of loopy cross between “Hit Me Baby One More Time,” Bye Bye Birdie, and a Gap ad, with opaque tights. Watch below:

    I feel like I’ve just watched a musical!! That makes me happy :-)

    By all the laws of taste and physics, I should hate She & Him. But somehow, the sum is more than the parts, and I absolutely loved Volume 1. It looks like Volume 2 is going to be the charming, quirky sequel. I’m in.

    She’s just too adorable for words. Its impossible not to like that video simply because its Zooey.

      Zune and iPod: Most people cmaopre the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    That was adorably dorky. Well done. I loved Vol. 1 and am looking forward (even more now) to Vol. 2.

  • Elle

    That was gosh darn cute!!! That video is going to put a smile on my face for days. I love She and Him, they are amazing. I can’t wait for Volume 2 to come out.

    I love that imperfect choreography.

  • katherine

    I love Zooey and M. Ward! They are both so talented and I cannot wait for Volume 2!!!

  • Gregory

    She & Him are simple & fun. Hula hoop sequence reminded me of choreography in Feist’s “1,2,3,4”. Loved Zooey’s little half skip down the hall after the music stops.

  • Jesse

    As if I couldn’t be more hyped for Volume 2, they go and showcase Zooey’s adorableism. Made up word? Absolutely. But it fits.

  • melissa

    So… weird, but I love it somehow. I love Zooey!

  • Pslightly Psycho

    This woman is the most beautiful creature to grace movie screens AND my CD player in years. I have a sentimental heart for Ms. Deschanel, and I think She & Him are amazing. (M. Ward is pretty cool too).

  • Katy

    i adore them both aand can’t wait for volume 2!
