The only thing we're more tired of than the Manic Pixie Dream Girl are the think pieces about the Manic Pixie Dream Girl — but we happen to love Lizzy Caplan, so this video she made is OK by us.
Neo-vintage clothier Viva Vena — "an amalgam of cool femininity and sophisticated whimsy, through a designer lens" — parodied fashion films and the hipster elite in its commercial starring the Party Down actress. The video reads like an Instagram-filtered moment in a Manic Pixie Dream Girl's head, and we fully expected Zooey Deschanel to dance across the screen 500 Days of Summer style at any moment.
You can see Caplan next on Showtime's Masters of Sex. She plays Virginia Johnson, one half of the pioneering research team that included her husband, William H. Masters. Showtime's new series, which debuts September 29, follows the couple before their nuptials and ratchets up the steamy sex-research adventures.
