As of late, Saturday Night Live is really going in on “gaying” up their skits. From SNL cast member Bowen Yang needing a “Straight Male Friend,” like NFL player (and Taylor Swift’s new boo) Travis Kelce, or Harry Styles needing a “king who can handle” in the “Sara Lee” skit, SNL is gaying up sketch comedy.
Yang plays Doctor Yi checking in on a patient named Kayla (Sarah Sherman) who hallucinates while experiencing sleep paralysis. She keeps seeing “a gay guy,” but he’s “not just any gay guy homie,” he’s Troye Sivan, played by Chalamet. Donning attire from Troye’s “Got Me Started” music video, Chalamet throws in some of the music video’s choreography (paired with a red undie reveal) because that’s what gay sleep demons do, right?
Not exactly. They’re also incredibly aware and know how to break the fourth wall. When Sherman asks Chalamet’s Troye if he’s a demon, he responds with “Not quite, girly.”
So what’s the tea on this sleep demon?
“I am Australian YouTube twink turned indie pop star and model turned HBO actor Troye Sivan played by an actor who can’t do an Australian accent,” Chalamet explained.
Ok, that clears things up, but how do you get rid of a Troye Sivan sleep demon? The only way to do this is to incorporate some of the straightest things the universe can supply – like a Logan Paul energy drink.
But if you don’t get rid of him and you decide to let this “blouse” (a fem top) stay, then Troye will begin to multiply, which he does by bringing in three more Troyes played by the band members of boygenius, the musical act for that night. And what happens when multiple Troyes get together, well they do more choreography and show off their red undies too, and they know how to get Yang’s doctor to do the same.
Thankfully, Troye doesn’t seem to have a problem with it and he even posted about the surreal experience on TikTok.
Check out the full skit below and make sure to get your Troye Sivan sleep demons checked out.
