On Friday, Grande released more behind-the-scenes footage from her “Thank U, Next” music video shoot – and one clip reveals that Kim Kardashian West was on FaceTime while Kris Jenner filmed her cameo scene.

Jenner was tapped to portray Regina George’s mum, originally played by Amy Poehler, who coined the now-iconic phrase: “I’m not like a regular mum, I’m a cool mum.”

Jenner’s casting was, of course, spot-on (Regina even has a younger sister named Kylie). Even Jenner’s daughter agrees.

“Is that my mum?” Kardashian West can be heard excitedly asking on FaceTime. She later tells Jenner that her scene was “so funny.”

“Say hi to Kim everybody!” Jenner says, turning the phone screen to face the audience on set.

One can assume that Kardashian West’s FaceTime-fuelled sneak peek was the reason she tweeted about witnessing “the best funniest thing of all time,” tagging Grande in the process.

Grande herself seemed delighted by Jenner’s acting skills; the behind-the-scenes clip shows her looking on, laughing.
