Timothée Chalamet starred in a sketch on 'Saturday Night Live' that pulled from Troye Sivan's "Got Me Started" music video
The Oscar-nominated actor, 27, hosted SNL for a second time on Saturday — and in one skit, played a sleep demon version of Sivan, wearing the same clothes and busting the same moves that the Australian singer does in his recent “Got Me Started” music video.
The day after the sketch aired, Sivan expressed his shock on social media, saying in a TikTok video that he was in disbelief.
“The only way that I can describe this is it’s like a weird f—--g dream,” he said. “Like imagine… I’m like, no, Timothée Chalamet was in my dream, but he was mem, and he was wearing my clothes and he was doing…”
Sivan, 28, also shared a clip of the sketch to Instagram with the caption, “WHY IS LIFE SO WEIRDDDDD RN LMAO IM DEAD.“
Bowen Yang, who played a doctor in the skit, responded in the comments section with, “🎶 god i wish it was you 🎶,” a lyric from Sivan’s song “What’s the Time Where You Are?”
The sketch was titled “Troye Sivan Sleep Demon” and featured a woman (played by Sarah Sherman) in a sleep clinic experiencing sleep paralysis. As she tried to explain the mysterious figures she’d been seeing in her sleep to a doctor (played by Yang), Chalamet appeared as Sivan.
The Dune actor rocked the same blue pants, white cutout tank top and red underwear that Sivan does in his music video — and gave the music video choreography a whirl, too.
When asked by the woman if he was a demon, Chalamet replied, “No. Not quite, girlie. I’m an Australian YouTube twink-turned-indie pop star. And model-turned-HBO actor Troye Sivan being played by an American actor who can’t do an Australian accent. Bye, diva.”
Yang then explained to her that they’d been seeing the so-called Sivan sleep demon in more and more patients and warned that if she invited them into her dreams, they’d begin to multiply. Before long, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker of the band boygenius (the musical guest of the night) appeared in the same outfits, eventually doing the same dance and also dropping their pants to show off their red undies — as Sivan does in his video.
