The sketch’s basic set up included a group of people who are busy playing pool and discussing their opinions and views about Olivia’s Rodrigo’s anthem named ‘Driver’s License.’ The group tried to relate the song to their personal lives. 

Pete Davidson heard the Olivia’s Rodrigo’s song and was seen speaking- “Sounds like some teen girl singing in her room with a piano.” To this, Regé-Jean Page responded- “Hey, that’s the beauty of it. You got a problem?”

Alex Moffat says- “I don’t want to say anything too controversial, but this is giving me Billie Eilish vibes.” 

Davidson exclaimed after hearing this- “Yeah yeah yeah, but the verses are starting to say… Taylor?”

“It’s got me thinking about my breakup,” said Mikey Day, “like maybe I’m Olivia and my b—- ex Gina is Joshua Bassett. And Sabrina Carpenter, that’s that b—– Enzo from the garage.”

How did Olivia Rodrigo react to this fully dedicated sketch of SNL?

Olivia Rodrigo took to her Twitter profile and shared a thank you message for the SNL sketch based on ‘Driver’s License’. She wrote- “DRIVERS LICENSE SNL SKETCH IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER IM SHAKING.”

Olivia Rodrigo started her career with some small commercials. She also got a role on the Disney channel for the show Bizaardvark. After three seasons, she gained a lead role in the famous show named High School Musical: The Musical. 

Olivia Rodrigo has earlier worked for some songs that took her to the “Drivers License” contract. Her song became the basis for the Saturday Night Live sketch in the recent episode in which it was being compared to Taylor Swift.

“Taylor has shifted away from the autobiographical, and now she’s in the pocket creatively,” says Regé-Jean Page. “Look at ‘Folkmore,’ man. Ultimately she’s a frickin’ storyteller… With you being purposely reductive, I got a problem.”

The whole episode of Saturday Night Live also included some discussion about Ted Cruz, Gina Carano and Britney Spears, check it out here
