Mario Lopez and Mark-Paul Gosselaar had a meme-tastic Saved by the Bell reunion
These two turned the social media 10-year challenge into a 30-year challenge
Talk about Saved by the Meme.
With the advent of the new year, many social media users have been posting photos of themselves as they appeared 10 years ago, and how they look now. But Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez took it a little further than most. Lopez tweeted a photo of himself and Gosselaar on Saved by the Bell from back in 1989, alongside a photo of them in the present. The reunion was precipitated by Gosselaar coming on Extra (which Lopez co-hosts) to talk about his new show The Passage.
“We see your #10YearChallenge, and we raise you this #30YearChallenge with @MPG and @MarioLopezExtra,” the official Extra account tweeted.
“Old school homies…” Lopez wrote in another post, while Gosselaar posted a video to Instagram with the two of them joking around. “Do we have history?” He wrote alongside laughing emojis in the caption.
While Gosselaar and Lopez are still famous thanks to their time on Saved by the Bell — where they played teenage heartthrob Zack Morris and star athlete A.C. Slater, respectively — they aren’t making much money from it. In a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Gosselaar told Andy Cohen that he and the rest of the cast made “really bad deals” back in the day, and aren’t really profiting from the show’s syndication.
