Even now that they’re starring on different shows, former Law & Order: SVU co-stars Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni are closer than ever. Back on the show, as Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliott Stabler, the two shared an intense bond over their difficult work in law enforcement. However, off the air, Hargitay and Meloni are nothing but a couple of goofballs. And fans can’t get enough of their humorous relationship.
Today, Hargitay posted yet another video directed at her former Law & Order: SVU co-star. This time, though, she had a tip for him.
“Hey Chris,” she whispered, the camera back at a normal distance from her face, “Whatcha doing? Listen, thank you for making another video for me. It looked very cinematic. And I love what you’re doing. I guess you’re sort of doing an homage to me, which I appreciate.”
She continued, “I think it was great, but I did just want to give you one quick tip–not a big deal. But there was no sound. I couldn’t hear anything. So, when you do a video, you have to either talk or make sure the sound is on, or else no one can hear you.”
Before signing off, Hargitay joked, “No one can hear us, right? This is a private channel?”
We’ll be looking forward to hearing Meloni’s response.
Backstory of Former ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Stars’ Exchange
Recently, Hargitay has hyped up her Instagram followers regarding the taping for Season 23 of Law & Order: SVU. Two days ago, the starring actress posted a photo of herself holding two fingers on one hand and three on the other. She followed up with a video the next day of herself on set. Strapped into a car on set, she whispered to her fans as she panned the phone around to show the crew, hard at work.
“Lights, camera, action,” she narrated quietly.
Of course, Meloni, now the star of Law & Order: Organized Crime, couldn’t pass up the opportunity to poke a little fun at his good friend. He posted a video of his own in response to Hargitay’s. In a darkly lit room, Meloni held the camera even closer to his face than his former co-star.
He whispered back, “Hey Mariska I hear you were back at work,” he whispers. “I hear it’s very cinematic. Where are you?”
Fans couldn’t get enough of the exchange, especially when Hargitay responded back. She held the camera up to her eyes in a new black-and-white video. The Law & Order: SVU star continued the odd yet hilarious conversation.
“Hey, what are you doing,” she asked Meloni. “I’m just in Captain’s office, waiting for the next set up.”
One Instagram user’s comment captured exactly what we all were thinking when we saw the video exchange.
“I feel like I’m interrupting a private moment here y’all,” the user wrote.
