The anticipated video for Ariana Grande’s single “thank u, next” is here, and it’s already turning heads. Over 765,000 people watched the live debut of the clip a few hours ago. That’s some TRL-era stuff right there.
Set to Grande’s mid-tempo ballad about resilience, the video is primarily an homage to Mean Girls. Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) appears to talk about his sexy, pushed-back hair.
The size of Pete Davidson’s d*ck is alluded to not once, but twice, including a mention in a quirky Legally Blonde homage featuring Jennifer Coolidge.
Kris Jenner appears, in a tracksuit with a circa-2004 camcorder, in a clear homage to the “You’re doing great, sweetie” meme. Troye Sivan also makes a cheeky appearance to gossip about Grande dating “some chick called Aubrey" now because she's a lesbian now, which is "f*cking sick."
Watch the “thank you, next” video below so you can be a part of the water-cooler conversation.
