This past weekend, Olivia Rodrigo's latest song, Drivers License, got some extra recognition on Saturday Night Live. And the moment she realized her song had made it onto the show, she was in disbelief, even "losing her mind," as she shared on social media. Plus, Saturday just so happened to be Rodrigo's 18th birthday, making the sketch that much more special to the star.

In the sketch, Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, who made his hosting debut, played a game of billiards with some "manly men," who were played by Pete Davidson, Beck Bennett, Kenan Thompson, and a few other SNL cast members. During the game, Page headed to the jukebox to put on his favorite song. Can you guess what it was?

Suddenly, Drivers License was blasted on stage, and all of the men started to admit their love for Rodrigo's song. "I gotta hear that freaking bridge again, man," one of the actors said, and then the whole group started to sing along. Now, that's certainly an unforgettable 18th birthday present, don't you think?! But the Drivers License sketch wasn't the only hilarious event of the evening.

During the Weekend Update segment with Colin Jost, Pete Davidson joked about being single, living with his mother at age 27, and removing his countless tattoos. "In some ways, I like the pandemic Valentine's because it's the first time being alone wasn't my fault," he said. "I spent the night eating chocolates and watching a movie with my mom, which is why I'm officially moving out of the house. One of us has to go."

And in terms of Davidson's plethora of tattoos? "I saw a picture of myself without a shirt, and I look like a toddler went to prison," he joked. "I look like I'm carrying a shiv but only to poke open a Capri Sun." Overall, the latest episode of Saturday Night Live was filled with some unforgettable skits. Without a doubt, Olivia Rodrigo's birthday got a million times better when her song Drivers License made the cut.
