This amazing video just gave us an excuse to quote "Clueless" a whole bunch.

Any girl born between 1980 and 1995 worth her weight in fluffy pens can quote from the movie "Clueless" at the drop of a hat. ("So okay, you're probably going, is this like a Noxema commercial or what?")

So it's pretty surprising that no one's done this before: Australian rapper Iggy Azalea -- born in 1990 -- has finally given us the "Clueless" themed video we so rightly deserve for her new single "Fancy." ("Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people contributed to my tardiness.")

Azalea plays Cher Horowitz in the video, which hits all the best scenes of the movie: Cher's digital closet ("But seriously, I actually have a way normal life for a teenage girl. I mean, I get up, I brush my teeth and I pick out my school clothes!"), debate class ("And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty!"), phys-ed ("Ms. Stoeger, my plastic surgeon doesn't want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose." "Well, there goes your social life.") and the Val party ("Do you prefer 'fashion victim' or 'ensembly challenged?'").

Charli XCX features on the track, and she plays Tai in the video. ("Why should I listen to you, anyway? You're a virgin who can't drive.")

According to this behind-the-scenes video, they shot the clip at the same school and even went to the trouble of shutting down the freeway for the iconic driving lesson scene. ("What the hell?! YO, you're getting on the freeway!!!")

I want to know who did the costumes because they're pretty much dead-on, from Cher's yellow tartan getup -- complete with "collie" backpack ("It's faux!") -- to Dionne's crazy hat ("Been shopping with Dr. Suess?"), which I'm just going to guess they don't make many of anymore.

Overall, it's the perfect tribute -- and, because this is Iggy Azalea after all, a super sick track. Watch "Fancy" above. ("I hope not sporadically!")
