While technology is taking over all aspects of our lives these days, it sounds like 2023 SI Swimsuit model Olivia Dunne is not a fan of video chat tools like FaceTime.

The LSU gymnast joked about the communication method on TikTok earlier this week. She stood atop a made bed in an all white ensemble with the phrase, “Can we FaceTime?” written across the screen. Dunne pretended to faint in response to the question as she collapsed onto the bed.

“If he really wanted to talk face-to-face he would teleport🙄,” she further clarified in her caption.

“Once I learn how to jump through a screen it’s over,” one of Dunne’s 7.5 million followers on the platform quipped in the comments.

“It’s just not the same as face to face,” one person agreed, while someone else noted, “I’m a big FaceTime guy.”

“And through sheer will I have learned to teleport,” another person joked.

While Dunne will return to LSU for her senior season of gymnastics, she’s recently been enjoying the offseason on a family vacation in Capri, Italy. Check out her Instagram photos aboard a boat in a black two-piece here.
