Mean Girls Reunite for Walmart’s Black Friday Commercial. In a delightful reunion that brought back memories of the beloved 2004 film, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Daniel Franzese, and Rajiv Surendra stepped back into their “Mean Girls” roles for a Walmart Black Friday commercial that premiered on a Wednesday. The characters have certainly come a long way since their high school days.
In this updated scenario, Cady Heron, portrayed by Lindsay Lohan, has transformed into a guidance counselor. Karen Smith, played by Amanda Seyfried, now works as a weather reporter, and Gretchen Wieners, embodied by Lacey Chabert, has embraced the role of a stage mom. As the commercial unfolds, you can hear Lohan’s Cady exclaiming, “Some things never change.” She playfully quips, “On Wednesdays we wear pink, but now we shop Walmart Black Friday deals,” teasing the early arrival of holiday deals this year.
Gretchen remains true to her character, trying to make “fetch” happen while assisting her daughter and the new generation of girls taking over the school with Walmart products. The commercial revisits some of the film’s iconic scenes, including North Shore High School’s winter talent show and its unforgettable stage performance.
Notable additions to the reunion include the presence of rapper, singer, and producer Missy Elliott, who makes a cameo as a teacher. Lindsay Lohan, who has long expressed her interest in a “Mean Girls” sequel, shared her excitement about reuniting with her former cast members in an exclusive interview with People magazine, stating, “It was so nice being back together after all these years. It was great catching up with everyone.” The commercial brought a touch of nostalgia and humor, reminding fans why “Mean Girls” remains a beloved classic.
