Ariana Grande's 'Thank U, Next' Video is Here & It is Full of Hilarious Celebrity Cameos

Well it’s finally here! On November 30th, Ariana Grande dropped her new video for her latest song Thank U, Next and it is the music video of our dreams. Given that the music video pays tribute to all of our favorite early 2000s rom-coms, it totally makes sense that Grande decided to recruit some of the characters from the films and packed the video with a ton of hilarious celebrity cameos.

In the beginning of the “Thank U, Next” music video, Grande pays tribute to one of the greatest movies of all time: Mean Girls. The Breathin singer of course had to recruit none other than Aaron Samuels himself. That’s right, Jonathan Bennett reprised his role in the video, and even mentions that Grande told him that his hair looks sexy pushed back, PopSugar reports.

Stefanie Drummond, who also appeared in Mean Girls, made a cameo in the video and joked about Grande breaking off her engagement with Pete Davidson, saying, “Ariana broke off an engagement, so I found a guy to propose to me and I broke off an engagement.”

Youtube star and Grande lookalike Gabi DeMartino and Troye Sivan, who Grande teamed up with for his hit Dance to This, also made cameos in the opening sequence of the video, which is a tribute to Mean Girls when all of the characters talk about the rumors surrounding Regina George.

Elizabeth Gillies, Ariana’s former Victorious costar played Lindsay Lohan’s Mean Girls character, and definitely made us do a double take. She looked just like Cady Heron.

Perhaps the best and most hilarious cameo of the Mean Girls sequence was Kris Jenner. According to Hello Giggles, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians' matriarch and momager played none other than Amy Poehler’s “cool mom” character and it was honestly the best part of the video.

In her tribute to Legally Blonde, Grande recruited Paulette Bonafonté, played by Jennifer Coolidge, where Grande teaches our favorite nail technician how to bend and snap. Victoria Monét also made an appearance in the music video and acted as one of Grande’s bridesmaids in the part of the video dedicated to 13 Going on 30.

Grande also paid homage to Bring It On in her music video and Colleen Ballinger, who proudly showed off her baby bump in the video, and Daniella Monet made cameos as part of the Toros cheerleaders. Nekai Johnson, Patience Aquart, Tayla Parx and Luz Remigio starred as the East Compton Clovers, PopSugar reports.

Last but not least, Matt Bennett, Ariana's former Victorious costar, played Cliff from Bring It On.

And don’t forget about all of the awesome hidden Easter eggs.

Grande wrote personalized pages to all of her past romances in her “Burn Book,” and had a few potential future song titles hidden in the background of the video, E! News reports. Eagle-eyed fans even noticed that Grande’s brother Frankie Grande’s signature was on a poster of a figure skater on the wall in Grande’s bedroom in the video, as well as the doll house from the 13 Going on 30.

We are totally here for Grande’s new music video. All we have to say is Thank U, Play Video Again.
