It's "Friday" and we so excited. Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)" video is finally out! And it's like the great '80s teen movie John Hughes never got around to making. Seriously, all that's missing is Jake Ryan driving up in a red sports car at the end.

But Katy Perry--or more specifically, "Kathy Beth Terry," her orthodontically challgened, heavily mouth-breathing geek-girl alter ego--has other love interests in her totally awesome eight-minute teen flick. There's "Glee's" Kevin McHale as the knight in Medieval Times armor of her nerdy dreams, and Kevin's "Glee" castmate Darren Criss as the big man on campus (the role Emilio Estevez probably would've landed if this video had actually been filmed in 1985).

But that's just the beginning of all the teenage dreaminess. Former tween heartthrobs Hanson also make a cameo as the band playing Kathy's outta-control house party, '80s teen sensations Corey Feldman and Debbie Gibson portray her hard-partyin' parents, and 13-year-old Rebecca Black, the viral-video girl who made Fridays fun again, stars as Kathy's cool (yes, cool) BFF.

And then, as a little something for older viewers, the original sexy sax man, Kenny G, stars as..."Uncle Kenny." And yes, he's got his saxophone with him. And he's jamming with Hanson!

Pop starlets these days keep trying to one-up each other in the music video realm--from Lady Gaga's outer-space epic "Born This Way" to Rihanna's controversial "S&M" and "Man Down" to Beyonce's "Run The World" miliary coup--but it looks like a little nerd girl named Kathy Beth Terry just schooled them all.
