A resurfaced clip of Ashton Kutcher joking about an underage Hilary Duff has been labelled 'one of the creepiest things a human can say'.
Kutcher helped pull a prank on Duff on the popular noughties show Punk'd, and while the show itself would still entertain most of us to this day, one of the gags hasn't aged so well.
See for yourself here:
In a clip from an episode which first aired back in 2003 - filmed when Duff was 15 - host Kutcher said: "Hilary Duff. I huff, and I puff and I blow the Duff down!
"Hilary Duff is in Lizzie McGuire, she also has an album out. She's going to be in a movie called Cheaper by the Dozen... And she's one of the girls that we're all waiting for to turn 18. Along with the Olsen twins."
The clip was posted on TikTok along with the caption 'this did not age well', and it has been viewed more than 700,000 times.
Commenting on the video, one person said: "It's weird how when you're part of the age group you don't really notice anything off but yikes you can even see in his face that the line was forced."
Another wrote: "The way he just confidently doubled down about the Olsen twins."
A third commented: "He didn’t want to say it, he looks at the director that’s why they do the camera change real quick."
Tyla has contacted Kutcher's reps for comment.
The actor has been making headlines lately after opening up about his battle with a rare disease.
The 44-year-old - known for his roles in the likes of Dude, Where's My Car?, The Butterfly Effect and Two and a Half Men - chatted about being afflicted by a rare form of vasculitis on Paramount+ docuseries The Checkup with Dr. David Agus.
"I woke up one day and was having vision issues [and] could hardly see," he said.
"[It] knocked out my hearing, which threw off my equilibrium, my balance and I couldn't walk. I had vasculitis, that you're very well aware of.
"There's a standard you become accustomed to in your life, like, being able to see clearly. And then suddenly, you can't see."
Vasculitis is an inflammation of the blood vessels, occurring when the immune system attacks healthy blood vessels.
Often the cause is unknown, but it can range from a minor problem that just affects the skin, to a more serious illness that causes problems with organs like the heart or kidneys, according to the NHS.
Kutcher continued: "Then you're like, 'Why are you not f***ing talking louder, 'cause I can't hear you?'
"You want to reclaim the health that you once had."
Fortunately, Kutcher has reclaimed the health that he once had.
He previously opened up about his vasculitis diagnosis on National Geographic's Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and in a subsequent tweet in August he clarified that he had fully recovered.
