Olivia Rodrigo simply struck a larger turning point than getting her motorist’s license: a significant reference on Saturday Night Live.
On Feb. 20, Saturday Night Live included the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series‘ star’s hit tune “driver’s license” in a sketch starring Bridgerton breakout star Regé-Jean Page. In the spoof, a lot of brothers play swimming pool when Page heads to the jukebox to play Rodrigo’s disastrous separation ballad.
While the people—consisting of Kate McKinnon as a senior Italian guy, due to the fact that naturally—at first dismiss the tune, it’s simply simple minutes later on that they expose they’re currently huge fans, with Pete Davidson mentally mouthing the words to the chorus.
In truth, Beck Bennett even mentions that he “heard on the news or something” that the track has to do with the HSM team, with Page then unloading the supposed split in between Rodrigo and her co-star (and unofficial “driver’s license” muse) Joshua Bassett. Naturally, the entire thing ends with the people connecting arms and vocalizing Rodrigo’s killer bridge.
The sketch ends with Page and Davidson brawling over a contrast in between Rodrigo and Taylor Swift, who occurs to be the teenager’s individual idol.
