“Ready or Not” by Bridgit Mendler


The Disney Channel has produced numerous stars over the years. Zendaya, Hilary Duff, Raven, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and more all got their start on the network, usually in sitcoms, and they’ve all gone on to do great things in Hollywood. However, no other Disney Channel star has had a career like Bridgit Mendler. Beginning in 2013, she starred in the Disney Channel show Good Luck Charlie, and released a couple of hit songs. Then she decided to focus on her education, first earning a degree in anthropology from the University of Southern California, then enrolling at both MIT and Harvard. She recently made headlines after graduating from Harvard with a Juris Doctorate and being named CEO and co-founder of the satellite data startup Northwood Space. She is truly a genius rockstar but before all that, she was a music rockstar, and to this day fans still listen to her songs hoping one day they’ll hear more.

Bridgit Mendler wears pink high top chucks in this iconic video.


“Ready or Not” is Mendler’s biggest hit, with over 225 million views on YouTube and 275 million streams on Spotify. This song is, to put it mildly, a bop. An uptempo pop track that features an interplay of the Fugees’ song “Ready or Not”, this song is about a girl coming into her own and coming out of her shell. Mendler’s vocals are amazing and her delivery of the verses stands out. The song is also just endlessly catchy and is a great earworm candidate. It’s no wonder why fans have been clamoring for new music from her for nearly a decade.

Chucks on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


The music video begins with Bridgit and her friends being given a Polaroid and a list of things to find for the 2012 Eastside Scavenger Hunt on top of a hill in Los Angeles. Bridgit sings on the hill as everyone drives off, but she eventually hops into a car herself. As they drive down the hill, we get a look at the scavenger hunt list and it is filled with different places to take pictures around LA. Bridgit and her friends spend the day roaming Los Angeles in their chucks and taking pictures. When the night comes, they return their memories to the people running the hunt and celebrate a day well spent with friends. This is a very nostalgic video for people in the generation who grew up with it, and it harkens back to the days when every music video for a Disney star featured friends at a party. This one stands out because none of those other videos had a future attorney and CEO wearing chucks in them.
