Watch Two Old Dudes listen and react to Olivia Rodrigo “Driver’s License” for the first time.

[Transcription]

Michael: Did she really play and then on that little keyboard thing?

Lee: Well, I wasn’t there. Hey guys, I’m Lee.

Michael: Hi, Michael.

Lee: And we are Two Old Dudes. Unless you’re drunk in which case we’re four old. Alright, so

Michael: [Laughing]

Lee: You ready to listen to some new music,

Michael: I just related to it.

Lee: You were there just last night.

Michael: I was.

Lee: Okay, so let’s get the envelopes from Perry. Yeah, you do the honors. And careful because you have no idea where that envelopes been.

Michael: Alright, we’ve got Olivia Rodrigo “Driver’s license”.

Lee: Driver’s License. Yeah. I’ve never heard of Olivia. Have you

Michael: Nah

Lee: Rodrigo. is that Hispanic?

Michael: I’m guessing

Lee: we’ve assumed said

Michael: yeah, I guess

Lee:
Driver’s license. So we got a young person. I’m assuming young.

Michael:
Yeah.

Lee: Seeing about a driver’s license. You know what’s interesting when we were young? You remember this? We could not wait

Michael: you’re assuming

Lee: to get a driver’s license?

Michael: I know. I know.

Lee: It was like our ticket to freedom ticket out of the house or from our parents and today. I meet kids all the time that are 18-20 years old. And no hurry to get to drivers. What is up with that?

Michael: You got Uber and Lyft

Lee: Yeah, I guess it’s true. I guess.

Michael: The day I wanted to get my driver’s license I was pulling off the curb and I hit my brother’s car

Lee: That worked out well.

Michael: It did I still got my license overall.

Lee: You know what funny I sort of ran a stop sign a slowed down but didn’t quite

Michael: during your test.

Lee: Yeah, he gave it to me.

All right, Olivia Rodrygo

Michael: Oh headphones. Can’t take you anywhere man

Lee: It’s like a movie?

Michael: Yeah, it looks like

Olivia Rodrigo (singing)
Got my driver’s license last week like we always talked about because you’re so excited for me to finally drive up to your house but they are drove through the summer cryin because you weren’t around

You probably was that Bond girl who always made me doubt she’s so much sure she’s everything I’m in sick you’re out here today I drove through this is how could I ever love someone else

Michael: Dude, is she really playin that on that little keyboard thing

Lee: Well, I wasn’t there. I can’t tell you for sure but it’s good

Olivia Rodrigo (singing)
And I know we weren’t perfect But I’ve never felt this way for no one And I just can’t imagine how you could be so okay now that I’m gone. Guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me ‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street

Michael: Wow.

Lee: So this is deep heartfelt love

Michael: yeah

Lee: Emotion just pouring through the lyrics that tune is haunting it’s really beautiful and the video is very well shot.

Michael: Oh yeah. And I’m loving that bing, bing, bing, on the keyboard so yeah,

Lee: it’s just that simple. can be so powerful

Michael: what a voice.

Olivia Rodrigo (singing)
And I know we weren’t perfect But I’ve never felt this way for no one, oh And I just can’t imagine how you could be so okay now that I’m gone I guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me ‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street

Michael: Wow, there’s some serious like relationship stuff going on.

Lee: And you know what’s great about so much when I hear some new music today a lot of it just feels a little overproduced. This shows you what you can do with just a keyboard some drums a couple other instruments and a

Michael: lot of talent

Lee: yes

Michael: just raw talent

Lee: and when you got when you got lyrics like that and you got a tune like that. You don’t really have to embellish No, you let it all speak for itself.

Michael: Yeah, I love how it just scales up and then just drops

yeah

Lee: yeah.

Michael: I just dig in the art direction on this with the lighting, and then bringing in the streams of light and that projecting the video on her back as like it’s a memory from behind of what they’re remembering. That’s pretty sweet. This is really nicely done.

Lee: I also loved when she just out of the blue drop that line so effing love you. It’s like so unexpected. And that’s how the power of a word like that it can be that powerful. If it’s nowhere else it just comes in and hits you like that

Michael: Yeah, in context that had a complete meaning. It’s like it makes sense. I could hear it be done any other way like that

Lee: right

Michael: as opposed to every other couple lines or something like that. Yeah, yeah, it really just makes really

Olivia Rodrigo (singing)
I still hear your voice in the traffic We’re laughing over all the noise God, I’m so blue, know we’re through But I still fucking love you, babe (ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh) I know we weren’t perfect But I’ve never felt this way for no one And I just can’t imagine how you could be so okay now that I’m gone Guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me ‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street Yeah, you said forever, now I drive alone past your street

Michael: Damn! That was cool.

Lee: Okay, so this was really good. This was an awesome video.

Michael: Yeah,

Lee: A fantastic song. The lyrics, the haunting music. It just all came to every thing worked together.

Michael: Yeah.

Lee: And hats off to whoever directed that video. Well, Matthew Dylan Cohen, it says there on the screen.

Michael: I says props on that.

Lee: And yeah, really deserve that credit.

Michael: Yeah, I think what what’s really nice is just the concept that just the core idea that song makes it so relatable because everyone’s gone through hardship.

Lee: Everybody’s driven by a house at 1:00 am

Michael: I’ve never done that.

Lee:
Wondering… not this week, right? Question. Does she remind you of anyone that we’ve heard before? I mean, there’s been a lot of great.

Michael:
You know, Mariah Carey, actually, because of just how the scales of stepping up her voice is really high pitch.

Lee: Right?

Michael: But there’s such a softness and richness to her voice like that. If she hasn’t blown up this is she’s like, frickin amazing. Yes, really?

Lee: Something tells me she’s blown up.

Michael: Otherwise, probably wouldn’t have given us the song right? Yeah, that man amazing. I’d like I’d like to hear the whole album actually. Yeah, see how this fits into everything else? Yeah.

Lee: All right, guys. Olivia Rodrigo. We love

Michael:
Driver’s license. Yes, sweet

Lee:

@babybtchbn

I got recommended your reaction to Melanie Martinez's mad hatter today and I've been watching all your videos you guys make great content 👍

@babybtchbn

OMG NO I was waiting for the drop and than they paused 😭 great reaction tho

@amcclenny6

From the millennial perspective, getting a driver's license is the precursor to getting a car, which begins a seemingly endless cycle of accruing and paying down debt. So, the longer one can go without getting that first car note, the longer they put off "adulting".
It's part of the whole "failure to launch" phenomenon that's grown out of control for the last couple of generations.

@iangarrido8230

I keep forgetting how driver's licence hit hard

@holly4902

Really enjoyed y’all’s reaction. Y’all are two cool dudes for sure. Kuddos!!

@bugsbunny8811

Please react to “All too well” the short film by Taylor Swift.

@feliciamartinez994

I understand 18 and getting a license because there’s so many rules to getting a license when your underage🙄 like I honestly don’t know why I didn’t just wait

@minibubblegum5108

Don't play this album during a fun outing or in a dance event. Learned it the hard way.

@rbennet1712

So what I learned from this is that neither of you should be allowed to drive. A STOP SIGN?! A PASS?!

@checkmyflow9190

what i love the most it's the subtle change in all the "guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me" to the last one "cause you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me" ... just the denial to the realisation.. it so deep

@drummerchick1414

The clean version of this song is just disrespectful. Nothing hits harder than "cause I still FUCKIN' love you, babe."

@drummerchick1414

Everyone pauses right at the drop! Ahhhh! 😂

@Staryeff

React to good for u and deja vu by Olivia Rodrigo

@camila-mu3jh

Hi guys! I'm from Brazil. I just found your channel and I'm loving it!!!! I just wanted to say a little curiosity about this song: at the beginning there are some sounds that are from olivia's mother's car (like the sound of the door locking or the warning to put on the seat belt). I think it's something really cool and creative that you should know.

@pratas4510

You guys seriously need to quit stoping the musing literally 1 sec before the bridge starts, jesussss…

Hi guys! This is the first of your videos I've watched and I enjoyed the reaction. One of my favourite artists is Missy Higgins. She is a master at emotional storytelling and has been so for the last 20 years. Here she is with another one of our Aussie greats, Time Minchin. Enjoy =)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nq3NR7EP8hM

@Shan72393

Yes her album Sour is a no skip album for me! It’s really good!
Like other people commented Taylor Swift’s folklore is another level! I think you guys would love it. It was made in isolation last year & is such a treat.

@HaggiyoPilipinas

Her song Traitor

@Taromilktea333

Please listen to enough for you by Olivia Rodrigo

@kuro.3310

So good - subscribed , I suggest y'all to react to her album 'sour' , its perfection ! Some songs you can start off with - Traitor , jealously jealously , favorite crime , brutal , happier !!

@Anonymous________________

To be honest, I didn't expect to enjoy your reaction the way I did. You guys were insightful & your reaction was on point! I'm so happy that you were able to appreciate the talent Olivia Rodrigo has. She's a fantastic songwriter, and she's hands-on when it comes to the videos she releases. Thank you so much!

@user-oy9cl9tn7l

I love so much the vidéo and I can't wait to see your reactions guys for her full album 💞.

@truthhurtsbutmatters

👍She is not Hispanic, Her father is a Filipino and her mother iz an American and they are living in LA. She was born in the US.
BTW.. Iiked the way you reacted to her.. Proves that you are practical and reasonable mature men.

@maudevaillancourt7038

New subscriber here! I’d love for you guys to react to any song on Taylor Swift’s Folklore album! It’s a complete 180 from her pop albums and really shows her songwriting talents

@daeroneusebio2585

@chuwkoyzulkefli5690

Hi. please react to BTS - BUTTER .. tqsm

@brucebrown3837

If you are truly going to listen to her entire album, just be prepared, it's a teenage girl break up album, and it's B E A U T I F U L. (I too am an old guy, and I really loved the album, and could easily relate to most of the songs.) I can't even listen to Hope Ur Ok, without tearing up. This young lady is the real deal.

@toker468

Please listen to her album!!!

@macarenamartinez7488

Great video guys!

@yourkind2971

React to The Weeknd Save Your Tears

@girasol3208

Please react to shawn mendes wonder

@RobBellSpeaks

Have you listened to Pentatonix? I'd love to hear your reactions to them.

@RobBellSpeaks

Great reaction. Check out "good 4 u" on SNL, she's amazing.

@snareyshot2879

Wait ya'll came in with the jokes right from the begining😂😂😂.
Olivia Rodrigo is actually Filipino-American. I'm pretty sure her surname is Hispanic because of colonization in the Philippines. I loved the whole reaction, the energy exuded was a delight!
Y'all should react to Mariah Carey music!!! She has written, produced and obviously sung all her records.
Her first single Vision Of Love is a masterpiece, it would be a great throwback!!! or her performance of Emotions at MTV Unplugged!! 1992.
She was also inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame last year!
