Of course, we are all a little “Oh, there are already poodles!” when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines. But the Los Angeles writer found an interesting way to approach the topic on TikTok – and it includes Gilmore Girls.… “
Jenn Ficarra, 30, has created several videos on the platform that investigate whether certain characters from the beloved series will receive their footage.
Ficarra’s first TikTok delves into most of the show’s protagonists, including Lorelai (Lauren Graham), Rory (Alexis Bledel), and Luke (Scott Patterson). He also explores several popular supporting characters such as Tristin (Chad Michael Murray), Lane (Keiko Ajena), and Kirk (Sean Gunn).
“Lorelai mostly did it for a small fraction of the time,” says Fikarra in her video. “She really wanted to be able to say she was the ‘Pfizer team’.”
However, she now says that she felt like she had “spoiled” her initial assessment of the pop culture preeminent Stars Hollow.
“Lorelai is Pfizer’s girlfriend, but she really would have held out Modern for Dolly. [Parton] connection– said Fikarra to HuffPost.
Ficarra also admitted that she liked thinking about Tristin’s vaccine status – a somewhat polarizing figure in Gilmore’s poems, as he was an elite bully who pestered Rory in high school because he was in love with her.
“I’ve always loved Tristin and really wanted to do him justice,” Ficarra said. “And I thought this video was a good opportunity to present what-if for him.”
We’re not going to spoil Kirk Ficarroy’s assessment … but let’s just say that it fits the character quite well.
Following the success of her first Gilmore Girls vaccination on TikTok, Ficarra posted two more videos on the same topic, drawing in even more characters from the show’s extensive cast.
“I definitely loved diving into Miss Patty, Kirk, Brian and Babette,” she told HuffPost.
Ficarra said that while some commentators accused her of missing a mark with several characters like Jess Milo Ventimiglia, she believes that “most of them were correct.”
Well, except, maybe, the curmudgeon who owns the diner Luke.
“The harsh, lonely part of Luke made me believe he might not trust the vaccine,” Ficarra told HuffPost. “But thinking about him to the fullest, he will eventually get vaccinated and just keep his affairs to himself rather than screaming about it, which will certainly induce [Michael Winters’ character] Taylor is crazy. “
For the record, Luke would have made the right choice as COVID vaccines are safe, effective, and recommended.
Ficarra admitted that some people might watch her Gilmore Girls on TikToks and think, ‘Who cares? “. But she also sees a deeper reason for publishing her game content.
“The pandemic is still alive and well,” said Fikarra. “And I think there is a little escapism and hope in introducing the characters we know and love to experience with us.”
