Nina Dobrev is nothing like her straight-laced on-screen counterpart Elena Gilbert. In fact, the Vampire Diaries star is a total jokester and is always out enjoying herself, whether it be at a concert (most likely Bruno Mars) or an extended Tokyo vacay. Her latest Instavideo is the crowning jewel in the prankster hall of fame — or maybe someone should be calling an ambulance?

In the video, captioned “Dead People Be Like,” Nina gets “hit” by a car. OK, we realize that she is just pretending, but she had us worried! It’s so believable, with her sunglasses and purse scattered on the ground beside her body. Speaking of her body, Nina is looking especially sexy in her striped maxi dress. Muy caliente!

But who was driving the car? Nina did tag Dancing With the Stars’ professional dancer and real-life buddy Mark Ballas in the post, so perhaps he was behind the wheel?

Either way, we’re all excited to see Nina on Season 5 of TVD. Her character Elena is headed to college while her bad girl doppelganger Katherine Pierce is human again. We love to see Elena play both of these parts because it’s challenging and we get to see two different sides of her acting abilities. October 3 can’t come fast enough!

What do you think about Nina’s humorous Instagram post? Tasteless or super funny? Hit the comments and let us know!
