This all started when Long shared the funny video on his Instagram page, along with the back story to how it came to fruition.
‘Cruel Intentions w @saraheramos. Sarah started doing these brilliant homage videos at the start of the quarantine that I really fell in love with,’ he began in the caption.
‘Long before I became a big @saraheramos fan, I was a fan of “Cruel Intentions” and @selmablair – so getting to play Selma IN Cruel Intentions WITH Sarah was the most fun way to pay tribute to these funny + talented ladies.

He added, ‘Thanks for the ultimate fan experience, Sarah! And check out her other videos on her IG page. And check out Selma’s for updates on her inspiring medical journey.’
