For his newest music video, rising star Joshua Radin got a little help from a famous friend – Zach Braff.
Radin, who famously serenaded Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi at their August wedding, enlisted the Scrubs star (a pal from Northwestern University) to direct the video for “I’d Rather Be with You,” the lead single off his sophomore album, Simple Times.
“Joshua wanted to do something very small and simple this time,” Braff tells PEOPLE exclusively. “So we loaded up some old super 8 cameras, one of my old Polaroid cameras, and went on a road trip. The song tells its own story – all I really did was create a simple, pretty collage around his lyrics.”
30 Rock‘s Katrina Bowden stars in the video.
Radin, whose songs have gotten heavy play on shows like Grey’s Anatomy, One Tree Hill, and, as of Tuesday, 90210, can next be seen on Late Night with Conan O’Brien on Wednesday.
