The thing is, Prince — a rather huge star — is playing himself. How would you expect a couple of normal people like Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) to act in the presence of such a rock legend? Would you expect screaming? How about fainting?
That’s exactly what happens in this promo video for the post-Super Bowl episode. The only real surprise may be in the identity of the fainter.
Although “New Girl” usually airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on FOX, the Super Bowl episode will air after the big game on Sunday, Feb. 2 — about 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 PT.
