Video Chat KaraokeZooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sing ‘What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?' (Nancy Wilson)Zooey Deschanel
Ed note: This is an oldie (originally published in 2011) but certainly a goodie. As we’re getting ready for New Year’s celebrations we wanted to share one of our favorite videos of all time. Enjoy! And Happy Holidays!

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! The original by Nancy Wilson. ENJOY! Don’t forget to check out Joe’s website Originally published December 29, 2011

  3. Thank you for posting this! My son and I were in an accident a few days ago and we’ll both be laid up in bed with broken bones for New Year’s Eve. This made me genuinely smile – I needed that. It felt good. Thank you again!

  4. Hey Zooey I just wanted to say I really admire your voice and your work. I also think it’s really cool how you sing karaoke to older songs and I was just wondering if you could sing one of my favorite songs. I know you might be pretty busy but it would mean the world to me

  18. Sweet renition I’m not sure why you’re citing Nancy Wilson, she’s just one of many who have performed this song. The song was written by Frank Loesser.
