Jessica Lowndes, Jon Lovitz romance is viral stunt for music video

See their ‘love’ immortalized in the music video for Lowndes’ ‘Deja Vu (Remix)’.

Posted on

Will we ever believe in true love again? Perhaps not after Jessica Lowndes revealed that her purported May-December romance with Jon Lovitz was in fact a viral stunt to promote her new music video for “Deja Vu (remix).”

Over the weekend the 27-year-old 90120 actress and the 58-year-old Saturday Night Live alum raised eyebrows with a series of social media posts teasing a steamy love affair, but Lowndes admitted it was all a ruse Monday.

“I know it’s still the last week of March,” she said in an Instagram video, “but is it too early to say April Fools’?” Lowndes then shared a link to the video, in which Lovitz plays an unlikely sugar daddy-turned hospital patient while snarky pop-up graphics provide running commentary.

In a statement released Monday, Lowndes said she met Lovitz while working on Hawaii Five-0 last year and “fell in love with his humor and comedy.” She also described the video as a nod to the kitschy TV series Mystery Science Theatre 3000 and Pop Up Video.
