A Lil’ Beef w/ Zooey Deschanel (Yes, It’s Possible…)

Like most of America since 2011, I have Zooey-fever! Zooey Deschanel is the cutest, isn’t she? This ad for Apple’s iPhone 4S is undeniable proof. I mean just look at her. Her adorable vintage haircut, her perfectly painted pink nails, her pretty ruby red lipstick and bright blush… um… hey, wait a minute, what? Didn’t she JUST wake up? Isn’t that the point of the commercial? That she’s staying in and ordering soup? She’s in her pajamas for Siri’s sake (or as the Zoe-ster would call ’em, “pa-jammy-jamsters” or something else endearingly annoying (or is it annoyingly endearing?)).

This commercial confuses the hell outta me every time it comes on. It actually feels more than a little sexist, I’m just not learned enough in the school of feminism to put my offense into words. Oh, well. I still love ya, Zoe. But next time you’re told you need to be painted up like a hipster geisha while wearing pajayjay’s in a smartphone commercial, I hope you’ll refuse. And…as long I have your attention, make more movies with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

One thought on “A Lil’ Beef w/ Zooey Deschanel (Yes, It’s Possible…)

  1. Not to mention she asks siri if its raining and then proceeds to look out the window.
    huh? why didn’t she just do that in the first place? This commercial doesn’t make sense.
