Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ video recreates iconic teen movies

Ariana Grande’s long-awaited music video for her hit “Thank U, Next” dropped today and people are freaking out. After teasing the nostalgia-filled video, fans are finally getting to see some of the most iconic teen movies from the early 2000s re-created with Grande as the star. Among the movies are Mean Girls, 13 Going on 30, Legally Blonde and Bring it On.

Not only were the re-creations spot on, but there were tons of cameos from the original casts of the movies. Jennifer Coolidge as Paulette in Legally Blonde, Jonathan Bennett as Aaron Samuels and the East Compton Clovers from Bring it On, as well as her former Victorious co-stars were a few of the many cameos. A surprise appearance was also made by Kris Jenner as Regina George’s mom.

Fans are obviously obsessed with the iconic video.

“It was worth the wait AND iconic,” one person said.

Another fan called it a “religious experience.”

Another person dubbed it the “greatest music video of all time.”

I’m not sure how Grande can top this video, but I’ll be waiting to see what amazing thing she does next.
