One month in, and Zooey Deschanel and Jonathan Scott continue to prove that no, you didn’t have a weird New Girl/Property Brothers cross-over dream, and that they really are dating. They’ve been photographed together, and they made their live television debut in the audience of Dancing With The Stars almost three weeks ago. But because the year is 2019, and nothing matters unless it happens on Instagram, Zooey and Jonathan did what they had to do and have gone Instagram official.
When I first saw People magazine’s headline that Zooey and Jonathan went Instagram official, I half expected that a joint couples Instagram account had been born. They kind of look like the type that would pick a cutesy joint name like @HarmoniesAndHammers, and hashtag everything #relationshipgoals. They didn’t dive head-first into a corny couple’ Instagram account just yet. Both Zooey and Jonathan posted the following picture of a double-date with his twin brother and fellow Property Brother Drew Scott, and Drew’s wife Linda Phan, posing with some zombies at Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights yesterday. In case you can’t find Zooey and Jonathan in that sea of people, they’re the ones bringing the haunted cheese with scared girlfriend/buff strong boyfriend realness.
Jonathan’s caption was just a little different. He wrote:
“So much fun last night. That high pitched scream totally wasn’t me! @UniStudios @HorrorNights #UniversalHHN Also happy to report….nobody got punched!”
They also commented on each other’s posts too. Jonathan wrote on Zooey’s:
“Wait…you didn’t post the pic of you holding me up!”
Zooey and Jonathan really have no bottom to how deep they’re willing to go for some not-sneaky brand partnership. They casually appeared on DWTS, and now they’re shilling for Universal Studios. Why do I feel like Jonathan is totally going to propose to Zooey in a TGI Fridays by placing the ring on a Choose 2 Grill Favorites menu. But with that being said, I am a little disappointed that they didn’t go all the way with their Instagram officiality (in association with Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights). How did NEITHER of them write:
“Sharing some Booos with my Boo. Don’t worry, I’ll never ghost you! It may be a nightmare here at Universal, but every day with you is a dream.”
That’s the kind of oversight a publicist could get fired for.
