business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Walmart is out with the second in its series of "Mean Girls"-themed Black Friday commercials, this one featuring  Gretchen Wieners (once again played by Lacey Chabert), with a cameo appearance by Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried) and narration by Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan).

This one focuses on how out-of-step parents can be when it comes to gift-giving.

Walmart has said that it will release new commercials in the series once a week leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday on Nov. 27.
