Mark the ‘Mean Girls’ anniversary with ‘Mean Boyz’ parody

Mean Girls turns 10 this year. Prepare to feel old.

April marks the 10th anniversary of Mean Girls, a film that continues to influence the tides of pop culture. To mark the occasion, YouTube parody star Todrick Hall just produced his own homage video called Mean Boyz.

Instead of Lindsay Lohan’s female protagonist, we have Cody, who just moved to West Hollywood from Indiana. Hall really amplifies the gay humor that’s central to his other work here: One mean boy’s father invented Grindr. RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Willam Belli plays Tina Fey’s Ms. Norbury.

The video is on par with last year’s Mean Gurlz, and Hall’s other pop culture mashups, like Cinderonce.

While there’s been criticism of the video, I basically felt like I was watching the Drag Race version of Mean Girls, which I’d watch eight more hours of.
