In fact, those aren’t the brothers’ names at all. The parody begins with “Damien” and “Steven” (Salvatore doppelgangers—clever) sitting in a dentist office waiting for their check-up. How else do we discover these aren’t the “Vampire Diaries” hunks we know and love? They watch “Glee.” Yep, Steven is anxious about his appointment because he watched that laughing-gas-hallucination episode (that reminds us…where has John Stamos been?). Anyway, when they finally get called for their cleaning, it’s by a scrubs-clad hygienist who looks an awful lot like Nina Dobrev. And that’s where the fun begins.
What ensues is a trippy mash-up of iconic “Vampire Diaries” imagery, from the masquerade ball to a remake of those steamy season 2 promotional ads—all cleverly set to Gaga’s Fame Monster track “Teeth” (those Hindi sisters are such dedicated Little Monsters!).
The video is a fun nod to the “TVD” fandom—any series watcher will appreciate the little details from the title sequence to Katherine’s curly locks to the Caroline and Bonnie back-up singers. But where the “Twilight” parodies follow a defined (however tenuous) plot trajectory, this latest effort feels more like an extended music video rather than a parody. That isn’t to say we didn’t enjoy it. We have a feeling it’s a bit more difficult to encapsulate an ongoing series rather than a movie that has a defined beginning, middle and end.
