Within 24 hours of Ariana Grande releasing the music video for "Thank U, Next", it broke YouTube's record for most views in a day, and also set a new record for Vevo!
But it wasn't just Ari's fandom that was giving the video views, it was celebrities too. More specifically, the original actors of the four movies Ariana recreated in the clip: Legally Blonde, Suddenly 30, Mean Girls and Bring It On.

Some originals were included in the clip, like Johnathan Bennett and Jennifer Coolidge, but the ones who didn't had so much praise for the singer!
