In this clip from Real People, teens compete to be named Encino, California's best Valley Girl. Don't be fooled by the presence of Fred Willard; this isn't a Christopher Guest movie. These things really happened.
Oh, these things definitely happened! I lived in Sacramento in third grade and I remember magazines having "lessons" in Valley Girl slang. My friends and I would "practice" talking like this until my mom wanted to kill us.
I was so sad when I found out that the "valley" in question was not the Central Valley (where I lived) but Encino Valley (10 hours away).
Also, Moon Unit killed it at the end of that video! <3
