Zooey's absence from the dance number in 500 Days of Summer was a tragic injustice. Here we have a remedy.
We shot 500 Days of Summer a little over a year ago. And even then, we kinda knew we had to do this. We talked about it back then, Marc and Zooey and I did. I mean, it really felt a bit wrong -- Zooey's born for musical numbers, and the one day she wasn't on set, we go and shoot a musical number? The wrong had to be righted. So when it came time to start promoting the movie, we had the idea to kill two birds with one stone.
Now I'll be honest; promotion, publicity, etc etc etc -- not usually my favorite part of the job. But this is different. This is creative. It's a work of art in its own right. And to me, it seems like so much more effective an endorsement of the movie than any interview or fashion shoot. Wouldn't you say? I wish all movie promotion could be like this: new, free bite-sized creations by the same people who made the movie. Plus it was about as purely fun a day on a set as I've ever had. Hope you like it!
[NOTE: alright, we've got a bug with the Hits counter. Dan's looking into it, not sure what went wrong. I don't think all the Hits on the site are inaccurate -- you can tell because when you refresh a RECord's page, its Hits go up by one. But it seems that when a RECord gets a lot of hits at once, it freaks out and doubles itself. Bummer, I'd like to know how many this one has got, because it's obviously getting a lot based on the number of Remarks in the Forum and RTs over on Twitter. Anyway, we're not trying to make hitRECord look more popular than it is, promise. We built this site ourselves, and we're still working out the kinks. Please forgive us! Thanks ~J]
