When the high school movie classics are referenced in music videos it usually happens one at a time. But for the much-adored thank you, next, there was only one thing for Ariana Grande and Hannah Lux Davis to do - riff on all of them.

So you get Mean Girls, Bring It On, 13 Going On 30, Legally Blonde, and possibly one or two more. A treasure trove for afficionados of those movies. Incomprehensible to anyone who hasn't watched them, but that's not very many judging on the YouTube viewing figures - a new record number of views for the first day, and 100 million views in three days.

Variety - pop culture references in thank u, next video
