“The Most Popular Girls In School” is a Youtube web series about the gross, dark, weird side of high school.
This show is so strange and great. My favorite part about it is how specific everything is: the way they use people’s first and last names, the character’s voices, the spot-on pop culture references, the shape of the world and how insane it is. The show is also f-cking funny as hell.
Using Dollar Store “Barbies” and stop motion animation, the show centers around a new girl at Overland Park High School, Deandra, and how she finds herself in the middle of a feud between the Van Buren sisters and head cheerleader MacKenzie Zales. It’s like a crude, sick version of ‘Daria’ or ‘Mean Girls’ or ‘Gossip Girl.’ I don’t know if they’re improvising or if the scripts are written but it’s so pitch perfect and hilarious I wouldn’t be surprised by either. I was gonna include some quotes here, but seriously, just watch the whole thing.
“The Most Popular Girls In School” started on Youtube in 2011, but has since gained a following on Tumblr this year (or at least, I watched it after seeing .gifs from the show everywhere). Start watching it below! Season two is coming soon!
