Those two stars of 2009's bittersweet romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer, Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, have reunited – just in time to ring in 2012.
With a ukulele in her hand and a guitar in his, the attractive costars strum and sing composer Frank Loesser's 1947 "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve," which, even Deschanel admits, was most famously rendered by Grammy-winning jazz great Nancy Wilson.
In a message accompanying their decidedly low-budget video on her HelloGiggles website, the New Girl Golden Globe nominee notes that she and Gordon-Levitt have known each other for nearly 12 years, after meeting during "the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Maniac, 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."
