Jennie Garth: Old Navy Ads with Luke Perry and Jason Priestley Were 'a Trip'

Jennie Garth and Luke Perry

By now you’ve probably seen the super-cute Old Navy ads starring some of our favorite Beverly Hills, 90210ers. They’re not only fun for us to watch (yes, we’re children of the ’90s) but they were fun for the stars to create, too.

It was all about “nostalgia,” Jennie Garth told PEOPLE Thursday during an Old Navy event in L.A. “Nothing’s better than the original 90210. There are so many devoted fans, that I wanted to do that.”

Calling the experience “weird — we were, like, in a hallway — it was a trip,” Garth said it was “so good” to be back with her castmates, Luke Perry and Jason Priestley (Gabrielle Carteris stars in a separate spot, too).

For Perry, “the concept was funny, the writing was there … it’s a 30-second movie,” he added. “It was funny. I only had to say one thing — it was one day’s work. That’s the thing I love about it; it all has to come together in one small window.”

And it helped that he was with people he liked. “It was very easy,” working with Priestley and Garth, he said. “It all seemed very familiar … here I am standing on the mark, he’s on the mark, she’s [on the mark]. We all just started laughing.”

I would love to see these two actually start dating in real life. How cute would that be?

@Kelly, I so agree, that would be too cute if Luke Perry and Jenny Garth started to date :)

I really liked this commercial and thought it was really cute :)

“Super cute” ads? They’re the most annoying ad campaign ever. And that’s saying a lot when it’s Old Navy, who never has good commercials. But the way Garth smirks and bounces after saying “I choose jeans” makes my eyes hurt. Why does it always come on when I can’t find the remote?

Love these guys and gals. Have always been a fan of “90210” – still catch it on Soapnet occasionally. Yes, these two, ‘Garth and Perry’ should date. I think I see a spark!!!!

Christy on

They should date!! Luke Perry is a great guy. Bring back 90210 please. I miss that show.

Have to admit, I’ve enjoyed seeing them in the commercials. This was a great idea! Not over the top, just quick and cute. They look as good together as they always did.
