Hilary Duff recreates her 2008 “That’s So Gay” PSA

Hilary Duff has recreated her 2008 ‘Think Before You Speak’ PSA – which condemned the use of the phrase ‘that’s so gay’ – in a new TikTok video.

In the clip, released Thursday, Pentatonix member Scott Hoying and his fiance Marc Manio take on the roles previously played by teenage girls in the viral campaign.

“This is so hilarious,” Manio tells Hoying in voiceover as the a cappella singer tries on a top and asks, “Really?”

“Yeah, it’s so gay,” Manio confirms.

Duff, dubbing her original lines, then interrupts: “You know, you really shouldn’t say that.”

Hoing – still portraying the teenage girl – asks, “What do you say?”

“Well, say something is gay when it’s bad. It’s insulting,” replies the “How I Met Your Father” star.

“What if every time something was bad, everyone was like, ‘Ugh, that’s the kind of girl who wears a skirt as a top?’ … Those are cute jeans, though.”

Duff, 34, explained in the clip’s caption why she decided to do the remake, noting: “@Scott Hoying & @markmanio410 tying the shirt as a skirt/top made me say yes😂 also 14 years later – still holding up ♥️.”

Fans in the comments section praised the ‘Lizzie McGuire’ alum for the impact the PSA had on them years ago.

“I literally stopped saying this reason for this ad,” wrote one user.

“HILARYYY this ad meant so much to me,” added another.

When the Think Before You Speak campaign first came out, Duff spoke to CNN for her decision to get involved.

“I think it’s so important,” she said at the time. “We’re just not nice enough to each other and there’s no reason for kids to go to school and it’s not a safe place for them or they can’t be accepted.”

Duff also noted that she has “a lot of gay friends” who she “loves to death” and would “never want to do or say anything to hurt their feelings.”

Most recently a mother of three spoke to Gay Times about what the LGBTQIA+ community means to her and her career.

“I really feel like the whole gay community has supported me from the very, very beginning when nobody took me seriously as a singer,” she said in January.

“So I feel like I owe everything to the community.”
