Sometimes, You Just Need to Smile
And I can’t think of a better way of doing it than watching this almost unbearably happy and heartwarming clip (featuring the 80’s hit “You Make my Dreams” by Hall & Oates) from (500) Days of Summer (see, I told you it was a good movie!) If you haven’t already seen the movie (and you are making a big mistake if you haven’t), this clip won’t ruin anything for you. For minimal background, Tom (played by the charming Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has just “hit it big” with Summer (played by the enchanting Zooey Deschanel), and like most guys in a similar situation he kind of wants the whole world to dance with him. Unlike us, he has an army of paid Broadway extra to help him. Watch the clip. Now. And go see (500) Days of Summer to support quality Indie film-making at its best.
Don’t you feel better now?
