There are few things I love more than a good early '00s music video to get my nostalgic juices flowing. One need only watch Many Moore's "Candy" music video to understand what I'm talking about. If you are in the mood to partake in my particular favorite brand of nostalgia, the throwback music video, then boy, do I have a treat for you. Whether you've seen it or not, join me as I revisit all of the epic moments from Hilary Duff's "Wake Up" music video.
If you don't remember Hilary Duff's song, "Wake Up," then you were clearly not a child of the early '00s and this article is a step one in realizing all the tacky '00s greatness you missed out on.
I feel like Hilary Duff was the basic bitch of ‘00s popstars (no offense, Hil) and that comes through so perfectly in this music video that you can almost palpably taste the glitter hairspray in the air.
If you haven’t seen this music video, then you certainly should, but just in case you are too lazy for a whoooole YouTube video (‘cause, let’s be real, we’ve all been there), I have compiled a list of GIFs that will give you all the essential information you need to know. You’re welcome.
