All Mean Girls clips belong to their respective owners. I only used to clips for humour and/or emphasize a point. Cause I think I'm funny.
Taco Bell was also not sponsored for this video. It's was more for quoting the movie/referencing it, and I happen to also want Taco Bell.
The only thing I own in this video is the script because I made it, and the essay since I also wrote it. Also, I guess I own my face.
