Hilary Duff recreated the PSA from 2008’s “Think Before You Speak.” This was to condemn the use of the phrase “that’s so gay”. TikTok video.
In a clip posted Thursday, Pentatonix member Scott Hoying and his fiancé Marc Manio take on roles previously played by teenage girls in the viral campaign.
“That’s so gay,” Manio tells Hoying via voiceover as the a cappella singer tries on the top and asks, “Really?”
“Yeah, it’s very gay,” Manio reaffirms.
Duff dubs her original line and cuts in, “Look, you really shouldn’t say that.”
Hoying — still portraying a teenage girl — asks, “Say what?”
“Well, say you’re gay when it’s bad. It’s insulting,” the “How I Met Your Father” star responded.
“What if every time something bad happened, people said, ‘Wow, it’s a girl with a skirt on’?” … cute jeans.”
Duff, 34, explained why he decided to do the remake in the clip’s caption, stating: ♥️”
Fans in the comments section praised the “Lizzie McGuire” alum for the impact the PSA had on them years ago.
“I literally stopped saying it because of this commercial,” wrote one user.
“HILARYYY this commercial meant a lot to me,” added another.
When the “Think Before You Speak” campaign was first announced, Duff told CNN about her decision to participate.
“I think it’s very important,” she said at the time. It shouldn’t be done.”
Duff also said that she has “lots of gay friends” who “love her to death” and “doesn’t want to do or say anything that would hurt their feelings.”
recently a mother of three told Gay Times About what the LGBTQIA+ community has meant for her and her career.
“I really feel that the whole gay community has supported me since the beginning, when no one took me seriously as a singer,” she said in January.
“So I feel like I owe the community everything.”
