Dr. Phil’s talk show may have given the world “Catch me outside, how about that?” — a feisty catchphrase coined in 2016 by former guest and current rapper Danielle Bregoli, a.k.a. Bhad Babie —but it seems that the host has lost his touch when it comes to other teen slang.

Phil McGraw currently has the internet in hysterics thanks to a video he posted on Twitter on Wednesday, in which he expresses confusion over “some words in my comments.” The 69-year-old goes on to share his struggle with “VSCO girl” — the photo editing app-inspired tween trend defined by scrunchies, Birkenstocks and a passion for the planet — and other trendy turns of phrase.

“‘Sksksksksksk?’ — no idea what the hell that is,” the befuddled TV personality admits of the slang used to denote laughter.

The VSCO girl catchphrase — originated from drag queen Jasmine Masters and used to express shock or embarrassment — “And I oop” also threw him for a loop.

“I’ve got a feeling that somehow or another this is way inappropriate, so you’re probably getting a really big hoot out of this,” he adds.

Sure enough, people are amused — and also totally charmed. While some fans did take the time to break down the VSCO girl phenomenon for McGraw’s benefit, others hailed him as their “favorite boomer.”

Sounds like someone’s earned his scrunchie — not that he, erm, needs one.
