    Tommy Hilfiger Is A Real Person, And Apparently A Lot Of People Didn't Know That

    Yes, Tommy Hilfiger is an actual person that is very much alive.

    Alright, so if you grew up in the mid-to-late '90s, then you probably wore and coveted Tommy Hilfiger clothing. (And also the scents, 'cause they smelled amazing!)

    And Tommy himself was as well-known as his brand. A celeb designer who hung out with actors, models, and musicians.

    Well, last night, Pop Crave tweeted out this TikTok video of Law Roach doing the "I'm Busy" FaceTime prank to his celeb friends: Tom Holland, Tiffany Haddish, Kerry Washington...and Tommy Hilfiger.

    While it was funny to see Law prank his famous friends, there was only one main takeaway from the video...

    Then, an equal number of people reacted to the tweet, confused that others didn’t know this information to begin with:

    Tommy Hilfiger is trending because people are just now finding out he's a real person and is still alive?

    @PopCrave i don’t understand. if y’all dk Tommy Hilfiger or that he’s still living, i mean i guess that’s understandable. but a couple of things: the 90s weren’t that super long ago. what like 30yrs ago? he was popular then. 2nd ik y’all know Zendaya she did a collab with him...

    So, yes, Tommy is not some made-up person (and I get the confusion, 'cause he does have the name of an old-timey haberdashery). But now I want to know: Did YOU know that Tommy Hilfiger is a real person, or did you think it was just a brand name? Share in the comments below!
