You’d think, in a show starring an actress who also has a singing career, that “New Girl” wouldn’t need the auto-tune treatment. You’d be wrong. The result of auto-tuning dialogue from the show is every bit as entertaining as it should be.
Although the video features lines from all of the “New Girl” regulars, the focus is very much on the relationship between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson). The contributions from Schmidt, Winston and Cece only serve to highlight this.
Probably the best exchange in the video comes from some amusing Nick/Jess juxtaposition. Right after Nick’s “Why are you running away?” line, we see Jess’ random marathon-finish bit as she says “I did it for Kenya!” Honestly, that almost makes sense in the bizarre context that is “New Girl.”
That said, Nick’s “I’m a man, Jessica!” is a close second in all its auto-tuned glory.
The great thing about this video is that it tells a fairly coherent story in the “song” while still adhering to the essential nuttiness of “New Girl.” For those of us who watch the show regularly, even the weirdest of lyrics (kind of) make sense. Non-viewers might be a wee bit confused here and there, sure, but that just goes to show that they should be watching “New Girl.”
Want more? Alas, this is all the auto-tuning we get for now. But “New Girl” itself airs Tuesdays at 9pm (or 8:58pm, if FOX is to be believed). And Nick-Jess fans definitely want to tune in for the April 30 episode — you will not be disappointed.
