“Oh hi! I’m soo amazing, gorgeous and adorable, talented beyond your wildest dreams and I’m totally married to Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie, and I got to make out with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, oh and I’m in a band with M.Ward where I write all the music, seriously! No big. Oh, yeah, and I can play the baritone ukelele.”

Oh, geez. Why even try?

I’m always happy to indulge in a little Deschanel-envy, and as much as I loathe her I’m kind of in love with her as well. She’s mesmerising, no? Here’s 3:03 of transfixed glare time c/o She & Him’s first single “In the Sun” off the new album, Volume 2. Directed by Hollywood hot-shot Peyton Reed who is also responsible for such blockbuster films as ‘Bring it On’, ‘The Break Up’ and ‘Yes Man’.

Especially be weary around the 2:00 mark for the hoola-hoop scene. You’ll know what I mean.
