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.”

2. He also made a music video for it and cast Zooey Deschanel, pre-New Girl, as his S.O.

No bangs! Blonde hair! Zooey, I hardly recognized ye.

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.

4. So naturally, he sings about what a terrible boyfriend he is.

Soooo embarrassing.

5. And gives Zooey’s grandma the lap dance of a lifetime.

6. He also channels a little Prince in the video.

7. And there’s this super important close-up of his peen in spandex.

 

It’s a parody of Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step,” but still: IMPORTANT.

8. IN CONCLUSION: This music video is beautiful, especially Zooey’s tears at the end.
