Last night, Mark-Paul Gosselaar appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as a familiar face to many children of the '80s and '90s, Zach Morris from Saved By The Bell
. Morris was there to update Jimmy and America on what he's been up to since graduating high school, while Gosselaar was there to promote his work on his new TNT drama Raising the Bar
, which premiered last night.
The bit was a hit with audiences and day-after Internet viewers, and included lots of nostalgic Zach-isms: the time-freeze "Time out," lots of talk about Mr. Belding and The Max, and even a Zack Attack song, backed by The Roots. Zack also informed us that he and Kelly Kapowski were married, but "Things got pretty rough after we split up. Kelly moved to a different zip code."If you haven't seen it yet, here's the video of Zach Morris himself:
If the rendition of "Friends Forever" didn't put a smile to your face and a song on your heart, you're probably too young (or too old) to remember the original. For the rest of us, it was a magic moment. Who knew Mark-Paul Gosselaar had aged so little, and was such a good sport?
Here's hoping that Kelly (Tiffani Thiessen), Jessie (Elizabeth Berkley), Screech (Dustin Diamond), Lisa (Lark Voorhies), Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) and A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) show up for Fallon's Bayside High Class Reunion!
