Mean Girls & The Real Impact of Regina George

Welcome to Lowbrow! Your cheat-sheet to big pop-culture moments from the perspective of two women- 25 years apart.

In 2004, a teen movie came out that would set the bar for all other teen movies to follow. Mean Girls was a cultural reset, and introduced us to some of the most fetch quotes we'd ever heard. Meanwhile, an 8 year old Emily was also watching Mean Girls with the rest of the world, and immediately decided that Regina George was the coolest person she'd ever seen. 

In this episode of Lowbrow, Emily explains to Holly why this movie changed her life and the impact it had on the cultural lexicon forever.

PLUS, they play a game to determine which character they most relate to, and we can confirm, one of them is a Regina.

One story, two generations, so much WTF.
