Zooey Deschanel is a lot of things—gamine, adorkable, intensely annoying, depending on who you ask—but she’s also undeniably talented. Fresh off a great season of New Girl, the singer has once again teamed up with M. Ward to release a new She & Him record. Volume 3 came out earlier this spring, but the first video from the record just dropped today.
Deschanel stepped behind the camera for the first time ever for the clip, “I Could’ve Been Your Girl.” The singer says it’s inspired by some of her favorite ‘60s musicals, meaning it’s both insanely tame and a little sweet. In it, a cute Deschanel and her cute friends cutely dance and goof around, adorably trying to woo Ward, who’s billed as “the star” and just sits grumpily reading a newspaper, immune to cute things like some sort of asshole. (Seriously, his behavior is totally not cute.) It’s a little fluffy, but whatever. Why would anyone expect anything else from She & Him?
