NOTHING SUMS UP the excesses of the early 2000s quite like MTV’s My Super Sweet 16, in which a host of very spoiled teens planned completely over-the-top birthday parties.

Yesterday, it was announced that MTV is casting for a new series of the show – and to celebrate, we’re reminiscing on some of our favourite moments.

1. Audrey having a sh*t fit because she got her Lexus on the wrong day

The moment that came to define the entire show.

2. Lorcan, and the time My Super Sweet 16 came to Dundalk

He abseiled into the Marshes shopping centre to hand out his invites.

He demanded to enter the party with two huskies, and two Irish Models on either side of him.

And he was not settling for anything less than the perfect baby blue suit.

“In my view, Blackrock [Co Louth] is the OC of Ireland,” he opined at one point. Iconic.

3. Darnell and his rather famous date

Oh yes, that’s Rihanna. When Rihanna was just starting to become Rihanna. And he brought her in on a camel. Rihanna!

4. Marissa dying her dogs pink

They didn’t go with her all-pink theme originally, you see.

5. Scarlett, who was 12 but insisted on having a Super Sweet 13

*struts in with sunglasses on and sheaf of notes in hand* “This…really isn’t working.”

6. Teyana Taylor’s Barbie doll entrance

Teyana Taylor (who you might know these days from Kanye West’s Fade video) entered her Sweet 16 as a life-size Barbie, complete with box, and became the envy of every teenage girl.

7. Amberly, who was taken to Paris to buy her party dress

Amberly’s da forked out $300,000 for the party, including $7000 for the Parisian dress. She also concocted a special perfume to give to her guests. Would you be well?

8.  Lacey, who rode into her party on an elephant

She also had snakes. “Why me?” – the snake.

10. Sophie, who was just a holy terror

She laid into her mam for suggesting she get her morning donuts in a more convenient shop, roared at one of her friends (who was helping her!) for no reason, and regularly spouted stuff like this:

11. And Ava, who was lifted into her party by a gang of hunky college polo players

Who she of course picked out personally. The LIFE!
