Featured on Kate Perry’s new album “SMILE“, the new single “Not the End of the World” accompanied by the music video stars Zooey Deschanel.
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.”
While on maternity leave, Katy set the concept in motion, suggesting that the acclaimed actress-musician step in for her. Directed by the female duo Similar But Different, the concept came to life, concocting a tale of mistaken identity with nods to sci-fi films and Katy’s “California Gurls” video.
Acting on orders to abduct Katy, two aliens accidentally beam up Zooey instead. The Emmy, Golden Globe and Grammy nominee for years had been mistaken for Kate Perry by fans.
SMILE debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 and has sold over 1.25 million adjusted albums, with nearly two billion combined streams to date.
