Zoeey Deschanel and Katy Perry are a celebrity pairing that get confused for each other all the time. Seriously, they sometimes look so similar!

Which might be why the singer's latest tongue in cheek music video for new song 'Not The End Of The World' features aliens mixing the Elf actress up with her.

Zoey and Katy are known as celebrity lookalikes, and, in the new video, not even aliens can tell the two apart. This is such a great music video idea.

In the video for the latest single taken from Katy's album Smile, Zoeey sports their iconic dark-hair-with-fringe look (below wearing a blue wig circa 2010 era Katy), while the singer makes a cameo with a blonde pixie crop.

"This is a pop culture moment," one fan commented on the video, while another added, "You and Zoeey are literal twins." Someone else said, "I never thought Zooey Deschanel would play as Katy Perry in 2020. What a year of surprises!"

In a recent Instagram Live, Katy revealed she used to pretend to be Zoeey to get into bars. She said, "When I first got to LA, I went to the club a lot. I had no money, I had no clout, I had nothing, and sometimes I would pose as you to get into the club."

Zoeey, meanwhile, took to Instagram to share news of the collaboration. "That time when those crazy aliens thought I was Katy Perry and I had to play along to save the world. Watch the #NotTheEndOfTheWorldVideo (link in stories) and join me and @KatyPerry at 10 AM PST for a special live to discuss the video, looking alike and aliens! (probably) Very excited to be a part of this video ♥️👽"
