Lacey Chabert, who starred as Gretchen Wieners in 2004 Mean girlstalks about her reunion with former co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Seyfried for Walmart’s Black Friday ads.
The actress told Yahoo Entertainmentin an interview published online Wednesday, that filming the commercials was “even more fun than it looked.”
“It was a very special day to be with Lindsay and Amanda again and reminisce about the experience we had together, which is so unique, and catch up with each other,” Chabert added. “We are all mothers now! It was truly a full circle moment.”
Walmart recruited much of the original cast, including Lohan, Seyfried, Chabert, Daniel Franzese and Rajiv Surendra, to star in a Black Friday marketing campaign. Throughout the month of November, the retail giant will release new commercials featuring the cast every Wednesday in the lead up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday on November 27.
In the final ad spot (below), Cady Heron (Lohan) is seen again at North Shore High School, only this time as a school counselor. In the video, she finds a “deal book” full of Walmart secrets being passed around the school, which references the iconic “burn book” from the film.
The other ads also featured Karen Smith (Seyfried) as a weather reporter and Gretchen Wieners (Chabert) as the mother of one of the new popular girls at the school. They also included several memorable lines and references from the original film.
As she reflects on filming the comedy classic, Chabert shared Yahoo Entertainment that she only has positive memories.
“Every time I do a project, I hope it will resonate with people,” the actress said. “So it’s great that something is so well received.”
