Ian Somerhalder Pulls A Naked Prank On Nina Dobrev While Shooting 'The Vampire Diaries!'

Find out what Ian refers to as ‘a very small, young elephant.’ As if you don’t already know…

Remember that scene on last night’s season premiere of The Vampire Diaries where Elena (Nina Dobrev) is shocked to see a soapy, naked Damon (Ian Somerhalder) standing in front of her? Well, it turns out there’s more to that story. A whole lot more…

He tells Entertainment Weekly of the filming:

“Our first AD Rudy … came up to me and says, ‘Hey listen, I have an idea.’ … It was that I should go to the prop master, another genius part of our show, and have them make some elephant ears.”

Elephant ears? OK, we like where this is going so far…

“The first thing we see is Nina’s reaction, so what if I was completely naked and we had elephant ears and double-stick tape, and I put them on each of my thighs, and ultimately, she would be staring at a very small, young elephant,” Ian continues. “The reaction that we got was f—ing amazing. I hope and pray that that is what we used in the edit because it was such a natural ‘Ohmygod!’ reaction.”

Hey, Rudy! On behalf of the entire HollywoodLife.com staff, as well as Vampire Diaries fans everywhere… we thank you.

Check out the infamous clip of Damon below, in case you missed it last night — or if you just want to watch it again:

I got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.I use.
