‘90210’ Cast Members Have a High School Reunion for Old Navy
It’s about time Old Navy got rid of those creepy mannequins! For their new fall line, the mega-cheap clothing hawker reinvigorates life into their newest ad campaign with an old recipe–using the original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210.
Featuring Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Luke Perry (where has he been?), and Gabrielle Carteris (what, no Donna?), the 30-second shorts introduce the scrappy gang of four as teachers at “Old Navy Funnovations Prep.” If only school was actually this bright, bouncy, and celeb-filled, maybe I wouldn’t have been playing hooky 90% of the time.
The first video is titled “Why Choose?” and has a radiant, barely aged Garth teaching a class about the science of getting just the right fit in jeans (why don’t they offer real classes like that?). She later struts down the hallway with her co-ed entourage and then has the delightful task of choosing between Priestly and Luke, to which she cheekily exclaims, “I choose jeans… all of them.” Ah Donna, how we’ve missed you!
In this second viddy, titled “New Girl,” Jason Priestley introduces a new kid to class, with the premise that she’s not actually a new student, but her fresh-from-China clothes would suggest otherwise. Mmm, how I love the smell of fresh silica!
Finally, in the last short, Priestley demonstrates how to avoid pantsing with a Schoolhouse Rock-esque cartoon clip. The moral of the story: wear a belt and buy some rad cat-head boxers.
