Remember When Jimmy Fallon And Zooey Deschanel Made A Music Video Together?

Zooey was also a blonde in the video. 2002 was a weird time for everyone, to be fair.

1. Back in 2002, Jimmy Fallon released a comedy album that included a track called “Idiot Boyfriend.”

3. Zooey takes Jimmy home to meet her folks, and then, for whatever reason, Zooey’s parents are like, “SING A SONG FOR US!”


Zooey is very happy about this.
