During a school news bulletin, Rarity begins her segment on fashion, but reaches into her bag to find she forgot her magazine. With her presentation scrapped, she improvises when looking at her friends standing off to the side.
If Rarity chooses Twilight, she declares smart is in, and the rest of the student body begins wearing glasses and asking Twilight on how to be smarter. If Rarity chooses Rainbow Dash, she says rainbows are trending, and everyone copies Rainbow's signature hair style and color. If Rarity chooses Pinkie Pie, confetti is the hot topic, and an excited Pinkie hides confetti explosives around school.
