One of the biggest trends on TikTok over the past few weeks is a 2007 video of Hilary Duff dancing poorly to a perfume ad on the Today Show. The actor and singer recently made a resurgence in a viral clip of the morning show performance to promote her perfume With Love...by Hilary Duff, as well as the eponymous single she released with the fragrance. Another video, a performance of the single with the same choreography on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, has also gone wildly viral, spawning the Hilary Duff Challenge.
On this week in Don't Let This Flop, co-hosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson discuss Duff, "With Love" and the resurgence of early-aughts culture in general (including the return of celeb perfume lines!), as well as Astroworld Satanic Panic conspiracy theories, the ubiquity of Erika the Money Lawyer and her consumerist hacks, and of course, the emotional destruction wrought by the release of Taylor Swift's Red (Taylor's version!). Is Jake Gyllenhaal doing OK this week? Honestly, who cares.
Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues. Join hosts Brittany Spanos and EJ Dickson as they unpack their significance, with a special guests to break down the latest trends in TikTok. Some of these stories will be silly; some will be more serious. All will have wider implications outside the world of TikTok.
