We are huge, huge Saved by the Bell fans here at Wetpaint Entertainment. And while we’d love to say that Stefan and Elena are the Zack and Kelly of Mystic Falls (remember when Z and K broke up? Heart shattering), normally such shenanigans don’t fly. Until today.
Ian Somerhalder tweeted this epically cramazing photoshopped wonder of The Vampire Diaries cast as the Saved by the Bell crew. For those of you who don’t know The Max from The Attic, we’ll provide a rundown of who’s who.
Damon is Albert Clifford “A.C.” Slater, the dimpled musclehead wrestler who calls people by nicknames such as “Preppy” and “Mama.”
Stefan is Zack Morris, the smooth-talking charmer who is in love with Kelly Kapowski and who received an unprecedented 1502 on his SATs. (Those extra two points? Those were for his winning smile.)
Elena is Kelly Kapowski, the prettiest, most popular girl in school, who could wear a pizza on her head and it would become trendy.
Bonnie is Lisa Marie Turtle, the richy rich fashion plate who once pondered, “What is art? Are we art? Is art art?”
Caroline is Jessie Myrtle Spano, the overachieving feminist who overcomes a terrifying addiction to caffeine pills and occasionally duets with Slater to classics such as “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You?”
Jeremy is Samuel “Screech” Powers, the nerdy boy with a high-pitched voice who owns a robot named Kevin and follows Lisa around like a lost puppy.
This work of art is a thing of beauty. Our only complaint is, where is Alaric? He’s so clearly Mr. Belding.
