Exclusive: Joe Gordon-Levitt Gets a Reason to Dance in 500 Days of Summer

Update: Unfortunately this clip has been pulled!

The film doesn’t open until July 17, but we’ve nabbed an exclusive clip of Joseph bee-bopping to Hall and Oates’ classic ’80s tune “You Make My Dreams Come True.” Press play above and read what Joseph had to say about romantic comedies and heartbreak after the jump.

Fans outside of the United States, me included, are out of luck for watching this clip. If you’re able to watch it, tell us all about it in the comments below!

  1. It started wtih a commercial starring Zooey.
    I guess that was just an ad before the video played.

    The actual video is a clip from the movie where JGL is totally happy in love and feeling confident while walking down the street.
    It ends right before the big dance number.
    It’s one of those things he recalls in a sort of larger than life way based on how he was feeling and that’s how they show it to the audience.
    But, ultimately, the clip is just him walking down the street.

  2. Can someone tell me why these clips are never available in Canada? Thanks for the description Eric but it’s just not the same!
