Watch: YouTube series perfectly mocks Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel

In a spot-on parody of the actress/singer, Hey! The Zooey Deschanel Show takes all the adorable and spacey qualities of Deschanel and puts them into three-minute clips. Starring Noël Kristi Wells as Ms. Deschanel, the show pokes fun at everyone's favorite manic pixie dream girl. Wells is a very believable Deschanel, but her tone and adorable lisp (something Deschanel can't always hide) make this webshow great. It's also uncanny how Wells mimics the She & Him singer's coos and "doo-ba-doops."

You really ought to watch all the episodes, but if you're strapped for time, start with this one, The Music Episode. It's pretty hysterical, especially when Wells talks about how much she loves records and wishes that someone would invent a mini version of records that you could take with you "when you're feeding pigeons."
