An Anime Version Of 'Mean Girls' Brings Fetch To A Whole New Level

Still from YouTube

It's been 10 years since "Mean Girls" introduced us to words like "fetch" and "grool," and concepts like pink Wednesdays. Given the thought pieces that continue to be written about the movie's take on high school politics a decade on, it's safe to say it's a modern comedy classic. Its world is destined to be reimagined again and again, today in an 8-bit video game, tomorrow on Broadway.

Sadly, the video above, a creation of 8-Bit Cinema, does not portray an actual Mean Girls video game. But it's a fabulous blueprint, with such inspired yet necessary inventory items as the Burn Book, an oversized pink Wednesday T-shirt, and a to-be-shattered homecoming crown. There's even an 8-bit Mathlete contest! Here's hoping some former, real-life Mathlete cracks her knuckles and makes us a playable version of this game soon.
