Zooey Deschanel may have moved on to television with “New Girl” while Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in the newest “Batman” movie (among others) coming out this summer, but the on-screen “500 Days of Summer” couple reunited for a little New Year’s celebration.

Dechanel posted a video of the duo singing the Nancy Wilson’s song “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve” on her HelloGiggles.com website, and posted a message to her fans about the long history between the two friends.

“I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years. We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since. When we did 500 Days of Summer 8 years later, we spent every lunch hour dancing to Marvin Gaye in the hair and make up trailer; we had loads of fun. I hope to do a thousand more movies with him because he’s simply the best. But in the meantime, we made a little New Year’s duet for all of you! The original by Nancy Wilson. ENJOY!
