Zooey Deschanel Has No Respect for M. Ward’s Coffee Time

Have you ever watched the long version of the New Girl credits and thought, I wish this involved a sixties movie-musical dance sequence, and also maybe Zooey Deschanel talking to a stuffed duck? You are in luck! Because the Deschanel-directed video for "I Could've Been Your Girl" features all of the above, along with a sad, disgruntled M. Ward, who just wants to drink his cup of coffee. Whimsy is fine — this is a She & Him video, it comes with the territory — but really, can't we let M. Ward have his coffee first? Stop spilling the coffee!
