Indie’s reigning prom king and queen—Deschanel’s even wearing a crown!—put their respective musical skills on display in this sing-along cover of the Nancy Wilson original “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” complete with (of course) a ukelele.
This is hardly the first time the actors have tried their hand at other artistic endeavors. In addition to recently getting a Golden Globe nod for her starring role as Jess on New Girl, Deschanel sings with She & Him and is a cofounder of the creative community/site HelloGiggles.
Deschanel posted the video to HelloGiggles, along with this message:
I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years. We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since. When we did 500 Days of Summer 8 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. But in the meantime, we made a little New Year’s duet for all of you!
