Mean Girls Cast Reunites for Walmart Black Friday Campaign
The highly-anticipated reunion of the original Mean Girls cast has finally happened – but not in the way fans might have expected. Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Daniel Franzese, and Rajiv Surendra have teamed up once again, this time for a Black Friday marketing campaign by Walmart.
In the ad spot, the commercial takes viewers back to North Shore High School, where the characters of Mean Girls were first introduced. However, this time, it imagines their lives as adults. Cady Heron, played by Lindsay Lohan, is now the school guidance counselor, while Amanda Seyfried’s Karen Smith has taken on the role of a weather reporter. Lacey Chabert’s Gretchen Wieners has become a dedicated mom.
The commercial cleverly references iconic scenes from the original film, including the famous line, “On Wednesdays, we still wear pink, but now we shop Walmart Black Friday deals.” This line perfectly encapsulates the essence of the ad campaign, as it beautifully ties in the Mean Girls nostalgia with the upcoming shopping extravaganza.
Excitingly, Walmart is not just releasing one commercial featuring the beloved cast, but a series of them. These commercials will be released every Wednesday leading up to Black Friday, and even on Cyber Monday. This move by Walmart is sure to stir up more excitement and anticipation among fans of the movie.
It’s worth noting that prior to this announcement, rumors of a Mean Girls reunion had sparked speculation about a Super Bowl ad. However, it seems that Walmart’s Black Friday campaign was the perfect opportunity to bring the cast back together again.
In addition to the reunion aspect, the advertisement also promotes some of Walmart’s Black Friday deals. Viewers can expect to find special discounts on portable speakers and big-screen TVs, making the campaign even more enticing for shoppers.
As fans eagerly await the release of each new commercial, it’s clear that the Mean Girls reunion for Walmart’s Black Friday campaign has generated a significant amount of buzz and excitement. This unexpected collaboration between the iconic movie and the retail giant is a marketing strategy that is sure to appeal to both movie lovers and savvy shoppers alike.
