This Hilarious Hidden Reference in the "Thank U, Next" Video Has Everybody SHOOK
Gather 'round the Oscar-worthy "Thank U, Next" video, Arianators, because there are a lot of hidden moments to unpack. When I heard about the one involving the UPS guy from Legally Blonde, though, I actually gasped and laughed out loud. The man in uniform in Grande's video is wearing a UPS outfit just like the one in the film, obviously. But his badge doesn't say UPS — it says BDE. Big D*ck Energy, in case you forgot. This is the character (who's played by Bruce Thomas in the 2001 classic but a different guy in this video) who delivers the iconic line "I've got a package" to a flustered Paulette during the "Bend and Snap" scene in Legally Blonde. So yeah, in Grande's video, he's got a package in more ways than one.
This reference only becomes funnier when you realize what Ariana Grande wrote for Pete Davidson in her Mean Girls-inspired Burn Book in the video. (Hint: it includes a nod to his now-famous BDE, too.) Never change, Ari. Ahead, see a breakdown of this little detail that left everybody shook, and then see if you identified all the Easter eggs in the video.
