Ariana Grande found the ultimate Halloween costume muse in Jennifer Coolidge.
After the Grammy Award winner, 29, channeled Coolidge’s character in Christopher Guest‘s beloved 2000 comedy mockumentary Best in Show, the reigning Emmy Award winner, 61, gave her seal of approval in the comments section.
“This is f***ing great,” Coolidge wrote. “I was gonna go as the young boy’s pet weasel from The Watcher, but now I think I’m gonna go as @arianagrande’s dog, Toulouse.”
Grande responded: "@theofficialjencoolidge we thank you, we love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and miss you so."
Grande dressed as Coolidge’s Sherri Ann Cabot, while her longtime friend and fellow Victorious alum Liz Gillies channeled Jane Lynch‘s character Christy Cummings from the movie about a group of eccentric people competing with their pets in a prestigious dog show.
They also hilariously recreated some confessionals with the two characters, who end up together after Christy trains Sherri Ann's dog.

Grande and Gillies, 29, were met with more praise in the comments section from the likes of Keke Palmer, Katy Perry, Rumer Willis, JoJo, Barbie Ferreira and Adam Faison.
“This is amazing,” wrote their Victorious costar Victoria Justice. “This is THE GREATEST thing I’ve ever seen in my ENTIRE LIFE! Y’all won HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!! HANDS DOWN!” wrote Ari’s brother Frankie Grande. “Liz and Ari won Halloween 2022,” wrote Gillies’ Dynasty costar Rafael de la Fuente.

Grande and Gillies also recreated another movie together for the video, reenacting Mean Girls (2004) as Regina George and Cady Heron, respectively. Jonathan Bennett, who played Aaron Samuels in the iconic teen film, also reprised his role in the video.
