In “Not the End of the World,” intergalactic Katy Perry fans accidentally transport Zooey Deschanel from Earth just as it’s about to be destroyed. When Zooey realizes they all think she’s Katy, she decides to go along with it to save the planet.
The whole video is a nod to a running joke that the two could be twins. In fact, Katy admitted on Instagram Live following the release that she used to pretend to be Zooey to get into clubs.
I have to admit something, Zooey. When I came to LA, I was pretty much a nobody, and you were like just getting so huge at that time, it was like Zooey Deschanel ran the world at that particular moment. Your star was really being born. You have always been everything to me, but in that moment, I was so complimented to look like you. But I have to admit something to you on a Live: When I first got to LA, I went to the club a lot. And I wanted to get into the club, and I had no money, and I had no clout, I had nothing, and sometimes I would pose as you to get into the club.
Zooey suspected as much, since her friends would insist they saw the notable goody two-shoes out clubbing.
The video feels very right for ending 2020, and Taylor Swift called it “genius,” so check it out and smile that this year is almost over!
