Lindsay Lohan joined TikTok this month, but had only posted a few not super noteworthy videos until now: a quick intro to announce her arrival on the platform, and two ads with Planet Fitness.
Her latest post, though, shows she's learned a lot about how to make a splash on the Gen Z-favored platform—even though she tapped into some quintessentially millennial nostalgia to do it.
It was simple genius: Lohan just dubbed over an audio from a cult Parent Trap scene, lip-syncing "yes, do you want to know the difference between us? I have class, and you don't" in a British accent. She captioned the video, "you heard it here first. #theparenttrap"
ICYMI, Lohan played twins Hallie and Annie in the 1998 movie, which makes the following comment a lot funnier: The official account for TikTok wrote, "oh, don't do this to me. i’m already seeing double"
TikTok star Rod, who is known for very millennial content, wrote, "UMMMMMMMM IM SCREAMINGANDCRYINGANDTHROWINGUP"
Someone else wrote, "This just healed my inner child," while another user wondered what all this activity *means*. "THE QUEEN IS BACK PLS TELL ME YOU’RE DROPPING A MOVIE SOON," the person wrote.
Worry not, fans of Mean Girls and Just My Luck (the best romcom ever made, IMO). Lohan is in fact dropping a movie soon, per IMDb: She stars in Christmas romance Christmas in Wonderland opposite Chord Overstreet, which should be released sometime in 2022. I. Can't. Wait.

The Power Issue
The word “power” brings to mind many things—money, career, influence—but here at Marie Claire, one idea we think about daily, hourly, even by the second, is the power of storytelling.
