Hey girl, there’s a brand new interactive music video for the catchy New Girl theme song “Hey Girl” and it’s, as expected, awfully quirky and cute. The gang’s all here (with the exception of Julia, who is probably off somewhere hating desserts) for the user-controlled video, in which visitors get to choose what adventures Jess and Co. will go on in their apartment.
I had Zooey Deschanel’s Jess (here, in full She & Him mode) at a beach bash (spoiler alert: Schmidt’s in a grass skirt!) and, of course, had the gang do their patented slow-motion chicken dance. (I’m beginning to think no one on Fox comedies knows how to do the chicken dance correctly, and I hope they never do.) Still, there’s plenty of other scenarios you can put them in (except, for whatever frustrating reason, getting Jess and Nick to finally make out) so be warned, between the music video and the behind-the-scenes look, it’s a bit of a time suck. Plus, you have to be willing to listen to the theme song a lot. Check it out here.
A new episode of New Girl (which may or may not feature dance sequences like the ones in the video…hey, with Jess, it’s entirely possible) airs tonight on Fox at 9 p.m.
