‘The Vampire Diaries’: See Nina Dobrev’s ode to suntan lotion (video)

In honor of the 4th of July, who’s in need of some summer fun courtesy of Nina Dobrev? The “Vampire Diaries” star has just created a brand-new video alongside the fine folks at Funny or Die, and we predict that this is going to have you either rolling on the floor or at the local store picking up some suntan lotion within the hour.

The song is called “SPF,” and it features Dobrev and Nick Braun rapping about how badly they need the lotion, why they prefer the SPF 110 over the Hawaiian Tropic, and how Nina Dobrev’s Bulgarian roots make it easier for her to get a tan. It’s pretty ridiculous — in particular the part that features Dobrev with mounds of lotion all over her face — but it’s also a nice showcase of her comedic talents.

This is not the first time that Dobrev has gone for laughs in some capacity. She had actually auditioned for “Glee” at the same time that she did her hit CW show years ago, and she also took part in a skit inspired by the Fox musical during the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards. We actually wish we had more opportunities to see the “Vampire Diaries” cast lighten up in ways like this; Kat Graham is the only other notable cast member with a major Funny or Die video in “Black and Jewish,” which she created as a spoof to the popular Wiz Khalifa hit “Black and Yellow.”

Does this video make you more likely to hit up the store for some suntan lotion, or do you really just find this entire ordeal to be rather gross? Be sure to share your thoughts below, and check out some of our latest “Vampire Diaries” scoop. Season 4 is officially expected to premiere Thursday, October 11 on The CW.
