We were so excited to see legendary country singer Dolly Parton’s TikTok debut that most of us didn’t stop to ask whether it was real.
Well folks, we have bad news.
Parton appeared to make a debut appearance on her apparent TikTok account over the weekend. But now, it’s been revealed that the video was a doctored clip from her archives.
In the clip, the star saunters into the frame adorned with a colorful piano and guitar with a greeting within the video.
“Well, hello. I guess I’m on TikTok! I just dropped in to say that everything’s going to be OK, you keep the faith, and to remind you that I’ll be on tonight reading you a story at seven o’clock Eastern time.”
Afterwards, it turned into a musical as she continued to sing the words to her 2017 children’s album I Believe In You.
“If I can do it, so can you. [...] I believe in you!” she said in the video.
