    Yes, that does indeed make her the "New Girl" on the app.

    So, what better way to introduce herself than with an homage to her most iconic show?


    It's just me, Zooey. And I'm on TikTok now. Hi!

    In her debut TikTok, Zooey sings along to the New Girl theme song, which she wrote, produced, and also sang in the show.

    The TikTok shows her changing outfits multiple times — from a seashell-print sundress to a green floral jumpsuit, as well as a gingham dress and, finally, a blouse-and-jean combo. In the video, she also sports a less dense version of her character Jess's infamous bangs.

    When the song reaches the part where Zooey is supposed to say, "It's Jess," she breaks character and instead says, "No, it's me, Zooey. Hi, I'm on TikTok," as she holds up a picture frame similar to the original theme.

    Unlike in the original, though, Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Cece (Hannah Simone), and Winston (Lamorne Morris) don't appear in the homage video.
