Zooey Deschanel’s Cotton Commercial!

It must be nice to be Zooey Deschanel, walking around with a Salinger title character’s name, goin’ out with the lead singer of everyone’s favorite band in college, acting in The Happening without any loss of credibility, starting an actually good band that everyone likes, being a famous person without seeming like a narcissist, and just generally running around completing a bucket list of everyone else’s idle fantasies, just for fun. And now, as if to gently remind us that no normal “rules” apply to her, Zooey has written and recorded a song about cotton for a cotton commercial, and for American audiences — not one of those “secret” commercials celebrities do in other countries that they think we don’t know about. Why not?:

Excuse me, but I’m going to go buy something made out of cotton now. The song is available for free download on the cotton site, though downloading a song about cotton might be pushing it JUST a tad when it comes to Zooey fandom. But just a tad. She’s Zooey Deschanel, bitch, darling. She can do anything.
