After dropping a teaser clip for her “thank u, next” video, Ariana Grande finally shares the visual for her newly-released single, channeling scenes from popular teen films and romantic comedies, including Mean Girls, Bring It On, 13 Going on 30, and Legally Blonde.
Directed by Hannah Lux Davis, the video recreates iconic moments from the aforementioned movies with a slew of celebrity cameos such as Kris Jenner and Troye Sivan, along with Mean Girls heartthrob Jonathan Bennett, as well as Ariana Grande’s Victorious co-stars Matt Bennett and Victoria Monet.
“Thank u, next,” which premiered earlier in November, is essentially an ode to all of Ariana Grande’s past relationships and famous ex-boyfriends including Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, the late Mac Miller, as well as that one broken engagement with Pete Davidson, all of which contributed to the development of who she is today.
In other news surrounding the single, the breakup anthem has become a wholesome meme.
