Lindsay Lohan & The Cast Of "Mean Girls" Just Came Together For Another Reunion
While most ads have me reaching for the remote to hit skip ASAP, Walmart's new ones actually have me hoping they wouldn't end. Walmart's marketing department was not playing around when they created arguably the most iconic Black Friday commercials of all time by bringing together the beloved Mean Girls trio, Lindsay Lohan , Amanda Seyfried , and Lacey Chabert. The mega-retailer had these actresses reprising their roles, only this time as adults! Seriously, it was so fetch .
Jingle Bell Rockin'
The commercial felt more like the ultimate Mean Girls reunion than a Black Friday ad, and it was beyond great. Lohan's character, Cady, narrated the entire thing and despite it being less than two minutes, it was jam-packed with references and info. We got to see what the Mean Girls girlies have been up to since their days in high school, and they all are still just like we remember them to be. Cady is a school guidance counselor, Gretchen is a stage mom, and Karen Smith is a weather reporter.
We also got to see a whole new generation of Plastics, as well as revisit some of the 2004 movie's most iconic scenes. Seeing the Burn Book (AKA Walmart deals) get leaked and the performance of "Jingle Bell Rock" was so nostalgic and fun, as was seeing Gretchen try to make "fetch" happen yet again.
Speaking with Variety , Lohan expressed her excitement about joining in on the project. She explained "It was so nice to be back together after all these years. It was great to catch up with everyone." Chabert also enjoyed her time reprising her role, sharing "It was wonderful to spend the day with Amanda and Lindsay. It was so much fun to reminisce and be together again after all these years."
The second of the series of ads focused on the iconic Gretchen Wieners and her family. She listens to "Milkshake" and exclaims "Throwback Wednesday! I love this song. What a bop!" and, of course, references her dad - the inventor of Toaster Strudels.
The best line of the ad, though, had to be when she yelled at her daughter for having her headphones in at dinner, saying "If you can’t take your headphones out, you can’t sit with us!"
We got reunited with Cady once again, as well as her BFF Damien Leigh, in the third Walmart Black Friday ad! The school that she works with is in full chaos mode, as new Walmart Black Friday deals just dropped. The students have even made a book reminiscent of the classic Burn Book that catalogs all of the biggest deals.
Karen appears at the very end of the commercial and, in classic form, wonders out loud "If it's Black Friday, why is it Wednesday ?"
Best of all? There's more to come! Each week, a new iteration of the ad will drop and feature a different member of the cast alongside weekly Wednesday social posts. IDK about y'all, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Tina Fey or Rachel McAdams cameo! 🤞
