Zooey Deschanel Stars As Katy Perry in New Video ‘Not the End of the World’
After years of being mistaken for one another by fans, Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel find that even extraterrestrials have trouble telling them apart in the official video for “Not the End of the World,” which premiered today on Vevo (watch below).
While on maternity leave, Perry set the concept in motion, suggesting that the acclaimed actress-musician step in for her. Female directing duo Similar But Different (The Chainsmokers, Liam Payne) rose to the challenge, concocting a tale of mistaken identity with nods to sci-fi films and Perry’s “California Gurls” video. Acting on orders to abduct Perry, two aliens accidentally beam up Deschanel instead. Can the actress pull off a Katy Perry concert and save Planet Earth from self-destruction? Watch below to find out.
“Not the End of the World” is a track from Katy’s new album, Smile, which has sold over 1.25 million adjusted albums, with nearly two billion combined streams to date. The global superstar performed a medley of “Never Really Over,” ”Not the End of the World” and ”Roar” at the T Mall Double 11 Gala and teamed up with Darius Rucker for a soulful rendition of “Only Love” at the American Music Awards. She also appeared in “The Disney Holiday Singalong,” which aired on ABC. View her segment, which features “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Cozy Little Christmas” below.
Katy recently came together with Coca-Cola to reimagine “Resilient” – a song from her new album. Partnering with critically acclaimed DJ & producer Tiësto and introducing the vocal stylings of rising star Aitana, the remix is an uplifting, inclusive anthem for our times. Listen to “Resilient” feat. Aitana (Tiësto Remix) below.
