Lindsay Lohan and the Mean Girls Cast Reunite For Wal-Mart Black Friday Advertisement
Get in b*tches we are going shopping at Wal-Mart! Today, Lindsay Lohan and her castmates got a little bit of gold in their stocking as Lohan tweeted out a new
short film advertisement produced by noted indie production studio “Wal-Mart,” who are apparently looking to advertise the fact that they are rolling out Black Friday deals on a day (November 8th) that is not, in fact, Black Friday. Watch out A24!

This short sees the girls back at North Shore High School in various capacities — like Lindsay Lohan is a guidance counselor and Gretchen Weiner is a stage Mom. It’s sort of like the Saved by the Bell reboot except much shorter. The advertisement features appearances by Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Rajiv Surendra and Daniel Franzese. Unfortunately, Lizzy Caplan is nowhere to be found and obviously Rachel McAdams is a notable absence.
People Magazine got the ultimate exclusive on how the cast felt about getting paid a lot of money by Wal-Mart to be in a commercial, and believe it or not, the feelings were positive all-around:
Lindsay Lohan: “It was so nice being back together after all these years. It was great catching up with everyone.”
Lacey Chabert: “It was wonderful to spend the day with Amanda and Lindsay and it was so much fun getting to reminisce and be together again.”
Daniel Franzese: “It was great working with old friends again for this new Walmart commercial. Being reunited around this campaign feels really special. What better time to get together than right before the holidays.”
Honestly though — truly genius marketing, I hope the millennial who pitched this concept wins an award, and I hope everybody who works in every Wal-Mart everywhere gets a raise this holiday season!
