“Try not to make a big deal out of this,” Daniel Gillies (Elijah) wrote along with this tweeted photo of himself and Jersey Shore’s Snooki. We’re going to ignore The Originals star’s advice and do just that! As did Snooks, apparently. “Ironically, this is what i also said to @snooki right b4 we took the pic,” Daniel added in the photo’s caption.

Frankly, we have no idea where this precious pic was taken or how they ended up in the same place. Perhaps they’re mutual fans. Back in 2010, Snooki revealed she watches the show when she tweeted, “Aw s**t, Vampire Diaries just mentioned Jersey Shore in the scene. Thanks vampire b***hes :).”

We can only wonder what their conversation sound like. Maybe soon-to-be-new-dad Daniel asked Snooki for parenting advice? After all, the guidette gave birth to her first child almost a year ago. We’re sure she has some tips for the New Zealand actor and his wife, Rachael Leigh Cook.

This isn’t the first Vampire Diaries/Jersey Shore crossover, though. Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett) hung out with Vinny for MTV’s The Show With Vinny. Oh, and Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) once explained how he much he has in common with The Situation. It’s a small (television) world!
