T Minus 4
Just because it’s past Christmas doesn’t mean the themes go away. Today’s theme is famous duets, and this one is a rather sweet homemade one featuring the countdown return of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who first appeared singing with Lady Gaga on Day 2. This time, his duet partner is Zooey Deschanel, who was his costar in (500) Days of Summer which came out, if you can believe it, over a decade ago — next month marks the 11th anniversary of its release.
Here, they’re just hanging out as friends and I’m pretty sure that she recorded this on her phone, so it also brings us a full 180 away from the big budget professional aesthetic of his duet with Gaga which, after all, appeared on The Muppet Show back in 2013. Sit back and enjoy this little New Year’s ditty.
