Adam Driver Gets Really Mad About A Blind Coffee Taste Test On ‘SNL’

Adam Driver is feeding into the power of the dark side and sipping on a cup of BK Joe.

Driver will serve as the host of Global’s “Saturday Night Live” and he put his acting chops on full display. Two skits from “SNL” were uploaded to Twitter and they could not be more different.

In the first clip, Driver and his new wife, played by Cecily Strong, are bamboozled by a coffee taste test. The pair are told they are drinking Domenico’s fancy pants coffee when in reality they just sipped on a fresh cup of BK Joe. For some reason, BK Joe is beyond Driver.

“You’re telling me that I was just drinking a delicious cup of Domenico’s new coffee with my new wife. And then a bunch of puds with walkout with burger coffee and now you’re telling me we were drinking BK Joe the whole time?” he asks. “I’m sorry, I guess I just don’t get it.”

“Well you actually do get it,” Mikey Day replies. “Because that’s exactly just what happened. And you’re not alone. Nine out of then customers say they can’t tell the difference between BK Joe and the fancy stuff.”

That did not sit well with the Driver or his new wife, the latter of whom proclaimed, “I’m a Domenico’s girl!”

In the second clip, Driver played ageing guest speaker Mr. Parnassus at a local school. The supremely intense senior citizen outed Pete Davidson as the weakest in the class.


The star was spotted filming one of the skits at Salmagundi Club in New York on Jan. 24 ahead of the first show of the decade.
