Music Video of the Day: So Yesterday by Hilary Duff (2003, dir by Chris Applebaum)

For today’s music video of the day, Hilary Duff says that you’re so yesterday!

Personally, I’ve always liked Hilary Duff and I think she’s underrated as both a singer and an actress.  For instance, The Haunting of Sharon Tate was a problematic film on several levels but Hilary Duff’s performance in the title role made the film several times better than it probably had any right to be.  Add to that, Hilary Duff is a Texas girl, just like me!  Texas girls support each other.

Texas plays a role in this video.  Hilary breaks up with her boyfriend, who appears to be a Galveston surfer.  When he leaves his Don’t Mess With Texas t-shirt on the beach, Hilary steals it and then takes it around the town and basically gets everyone to pose while wearing it.  Good for her!  This is a fun, revenge-filled video.  Hilary Duff lets her ex know that he is “so yesterday,” and his t-shirt looks better on a random skater dude than it does on him.  Take that!

I’ve been asked if Don’t Mess With Texas is something that is really said down here and the answer is that it is.  Don’t Mess With Texas started out as an anti-littering slogan but it has since been transformed into a catch-all phrase that can be used for almost any situation.  For instance, whenever we talk about all of the Yankees that have been moving down here, we always agree that they better live by the slogan.  Remember why you left your old state and don’t mess with Texas.
