Hilary Duff, Disney Promo Video

Disney

Every '90s-'00s kid knows there is nothing better than some quality Disney Channel nostalgia. These painful throwback videos will make your day. A long, long time ago when shows like Lizzie McGuireThat's So Raven and Sister, Sister reruns were on the Disney Channel, fans would often see promos with their actors in between shows. Stars like Hilary DuffRaven-Symoné and more, waved a magic wand in the shape of Mickey Mouse ears. You remember those, right? Right? Of course, you do! They'd start out a little something like, "I'm XYZ from XYZ show, and you're watching Disney Channel!" They were fun, adorable, and an awesome opportunity to see the actors behind your favorite childhood characters. Or so we thought. It turns out that entire filming process was awkward. As. Hell. Someone uploaded the behind-the-scenes footage to prove it. Prepare to cringe; these are rough. By rough we mean hilarious. 

We feel for our favorite child stars. Like, so hard. Think about it! Slapping on a happy face and waving a green stick in front of a camera over and over again looks not only awkward but exhausting. Because they endured this awkwardness, however, your childhood was off the chain. All we can say to that is cheers to all of them for making it through these. If you want your daily dose of nostalgia, here's where you'll get it today. Check out some of the hilarious clips below.  

The promos went a little something like this. Here's a finished example with Demi Lovato, promoting the Disney Channel and her show Sonny with a Chance. What a time to be alive. All fine and dandy, right? 

Wrong. This is what filming looked like behind the scenes. We're all as uncomfortable as Hilary Duff looks in this video right now. 

The awkward wand motions! The overly-excited line delivery! Those ruthlessly styled Disney Channel outfits! Raven looks like she's had just about enough.

When Tia Mowry saw the clip, it seemed like she felt the awkwardness too. She tweeted "Omg!!!!!!!! They were still filming?!!!" alongside the old video of her and sister Tamera Mowry

Disney blooper gold.
