After breaking several records, American songstress Olivia Rodrigo's debut single inspired a Saturday Night Live skit. The Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page recently made his SNL debut on February 20, 2021, and incorporated a sketch about Olivia's chartbuster song, Driver's License. Thus, the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star, who celebrated her 18th birthday on the same day as the SNL sketch's premiere, excitedly reacted about the same on her Twitter handle.
Last Saturday, British-Zimbabwean actor Regé-Jean Page on SNL made his debut with a bang. In the sketch titled after Olivia Rodrigo's hit song, Page is shown at a bar with SNL cast members Beck Bennett, Pete Davidson, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, Bowen Yang and Kenan Thompson as they boasted about a tough game ahead of shooting some pool. The Bridgerton star is heard saying, "Hey, easy boys. I'll take all of your money by the end of the night. Just let me play my song first."
As the soft notes of the emotional melody begin to play, the 31-year-old closes his eyes. As the music plays in the background, a confused Beck Bennett demands to know which song they were listening to. After Regé-Jean Page explains the song to his fellow pool pals, the sketch ends with the guys singing Olivia's chartbuster single at the top of their lungs.
