Kristen Bell would love to bring Veronica Mars back to TV, so she reunited with her costars Jason Dohring and Ryan Hansen to ask fans for their help. At least, that鈥檚 what she thought she was doing.

鈥淪o, the network is apparently finally considering bringing back our beloved show,鈥 Bell says in a YouTube video. 鈥淏ut it is going to take something very special to push them over the edge.鈥

鈥淥ur fans have always been such a big part of the success of the show, which is why we鈥檙e inviting you to be a part of bringing it back,鈥 Dohring continues.

Hansen, who played Dick Casablancas on Veronica Mars, then pipes in, 鈥淐lever stunt campaigns have always been such a huge part of getting a show renewed.鈥 (Indeed, the 2014 Veronica Mars movie was crowdfunded by fans on Kickstarter.)

With that in mind, Bell suggests sending letters 鈥渁nd maybe Mars bars鈥 to the network to encourage them to bring back Veronica Mars.

Except, it turns out that that鈥檚 not the point of the video at all. The 鈥渘etwork鈥 in the script is actually YouTube Red 鈥 which airs Hansen鈥檚 *other* show.

Realizing she and Dohring have been 鈥渄uped鈥 into campaigning for Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, Bell blows up at her former costar, telling Hansen, 鈥淚 thought I hated you before, but I really hate you now.鈥 (Please never change, Dick and Veronica.)

Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, which costars Aly Michalka and Samira Wiley, is a comedy about LAPD homicide detectives who are partnered with actors in order to solve murders. Season 1 is available on YouTube Red.
