Before she was the Scarlet Witch, and the of the incredibly popular MCU show WandaVision, Elizabeth Olsen was just Lizzie, the lesser-known sister of superstar twin prodigies, Mary Kate and Ashley. And it turns that Lizzie was even the subject of a diss track released by Mary Kate and Ashley titled “B-U-T-T Out.”
The song was a part of 1994’s The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley: The Case of Thorn Mansion, the first in an 11-episode series starring the twins that featured as amateur sleuths who solve mysteries in the form of musical numbers. Comedy writer Georgia Shenk shared the video on Twitter, where it has received over 750,000 views in less than a day. For many, it’s a funny reminder of the Olsen movies we watched as children — and a hilarious look back at Lizzie, who didn’t become a superstar until her young adulthood.
“B-U-T-T Out” opens with Mary Kate and Ashley telling their five-year-old sister Lizzie, who asks to come along for their adventure, that they had “a job to do” that could only be done by big kids.
“What am I? Chopped liver?” Lizzie asks, causing her older sisters to bust out a song essentially telling her to get out of their faces.
Over the course of the three-minute track, the twins toss out their most savage roasts towards their younger sister, saying that they would rather get “picked up by a twister” or “eat french-fried garden snails” than be forced to let Lizzie tag along for their big case.
The closest they get to a compromise is telling her that perhaps she’ll be allowed to join their mystery crew in about a year but then quickly say she might have to wait until the next century. These are the types of harsh truths that can only be delivered from your siblings. By the end of the song, Lizzie has received the message loud and clear and sadly waves goodbye to Mary Kate and Ashley as they head off to crack the case wide open.
It’s a tough experience that every younger sibling has gone through but perhaps they can take some solace in the belief that one day, they, too, will get to be a part of the most profitable franchise in film history.
