Lindsay Lohan has a TikTok and she knows how to use it.
On February 20, the actor took to the app to lip-sync a line from her famous 1998 remake of The Parent Trap, in which she played eleven-year-old twins, Hallie Parker and Annie James. In case you forgot the plot of this frankly bonkers film, Hallie and Annie were separated when their parents got divorced and knew nothing of each other’s existence until they met at summer camp years later. After realizing what happened, the twins switch places in an effort to get to know their other parent and bring the family back together.
Seriously, though, how did we ignore the implications of that?? When they first got divorced, Elizabeth James (Natasha Richardson) and Nick Parker (Dennis Quaid) were literally just fine giving up one of their children forever?! Straight to jail! Honestly, this would be my villain origin story. The truth is that Meredith Blake (Elaine Hendrix) was probably too good for the lot of them!
Anyways, back to Lindsay Lohan. The former child star posted a nonchalant TikTok video to one of Hallie and Annie’s best interactions. “Yes, you want to know the difference between us?” Lohan lip-synced. “I have class and you don’t.”
“You heard it here first,” she captioned the post. Heard what here first? Does Lohan just mean that we first heard the quotable line from her or is she teasing a possible sequel? Is it another Parent Trap reference I am completely blanking on? I’m probably overthinking this but if a reboot is in the works, I have a lot of ideas. Have your people call my people, Lohan.
Whatever the purpose of the TikTok, Lohan’s video now has 1.8 million likes and over 10 million views. That’s more than her TikTok video of her recent Super Bowl commercial, which was also a pretty meta throwback to Lohan’s life in the mid-2000s.
“It was an opportunity for me to really put all the little things that happened in the past to bed, and it was a really lighthearted, fun way of doing it,” she told Glamour of the Planet Fitness ad. “I’m comfortable poking fun at the past and leaving it there.”
