Those who believe TikTok is only for teens clearly haven’t seen Jennifer Lopez’s profile yet. The 50-year-old is giving kids a run for their (influencer) money with her latest video published on the video platform.
The clip in question is the “Flip the Switch” challenge, which you may have seen featured on Saturday Night Live this past weekend with Senator Elizabeth Warren and cast member Kate McKinnon. If you aren’t familiar with the meme, it typically features two people: one who dances to the song “Nonstop” by Drake and one who stands still, filming. When the line “I just flipped the switch” comes on, the person dancing switches roles with the person filming, down to their outfits.
JLo decided to “flip the switch” with her soon-to-be husband Alex Rodriguez and the attention to detail is impeccable. The video starts with A-Rod filming stoically with his phone as JLo dances in a white bodycon dress. When the Drake song gives them their cue, A-Rod switches outfits with JLo, wearing her bodycon dress and hoop earrings, while JLo is nonchalant in her husband’s suit jacket and sunglasses.
You really just need to watch it for yourself.

JLo is no stranger to TikTok challenges: last month, her Super Bowl headline performance spurred the #JLoTikTokChallenge, in which fans posted videos of themselves performing her choreography from the show.
