“You said forever, now I walk alone on your street.”
SNL has officially addressed the coup Olivia rodrigo the song “Drivers License” – and the surrounding drama who it’s really about – and the sketch itself is one of the best on the show in a while. In last night’s episode of Saturday night live, hosted by Bridgerton star Regé-Jean page, the crowd was full of energy and the sketches were much more consistent than they had been in a long time. So when we highlight this “Driver’s License” sketch, believe us when we say it is Really Okay.
In fact, the sketch begins with a bar full of men playing pool when Page plays “his song” on the jukebox, which turns out to be the sad Top 40 hit “Driver’s License.” What follows is more than a sketch of “men like a Top 40 song”, since the conversation turns into a debate about the artist’s intention, and if it is reductive to say that Rodrigo’s song reminds Billie eilish or Taylor Swift. There’s also Kate mckinnon like an old man and Bowen yang singing and dancing with the heart.
This really is an excellent sketch, and Page shows solid commitment as he digs deep as a passionate Olivia Rodrigo fan. And yes, the sketch make get into the drama behind the writing of the song itself, and who it was written about specifically. But I wouldn’t dare spoil exactly how you approach that subject.
Review the SNL sketch for yourself below, but one will be have this song stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
