How would you feel if you sat down and watched a 30-years-younger version of yourself at work?
Try keeping that in mind as you watch Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez – Saved By the Bell‘s Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater, respectively – witness their younger selves at work in select scenes from the ’90s series. It’s a cute little Zoom reunion-style moment that’s weaponized here as a Peacock ad.
NBC’s Peacock streaming service is up and running, and Saved By the Bell is one of the items in its vast catalog that is primed for a summertime binge. The 1990s TV series about high school life is filled with exactly the kind of cringe-worthy fashion and dated teaching moments that a student of pop culture history could ask for.
Berkley and Lopez cringe hard, repeatedly, and it is an absolute delight.
