How much can a post-it really be worth? When it comes from Dan Levy, the answer is a whole Saturday Night Live tradition and a warm fuzzy feeling right in the chest. Our hearts are feeling full seeing that other celebrities like Regina King and Rege-Jean Page have continued the Schitt’s Creek star’s adorable tradition of leaving post-it notes on the SNL dressing room mirror for the next host, wishing them well with some kind words.
Leave it to Dan Levy to help make such a simple and heartwarming gesture into a celebrity trend; the man can seemingly turn anything to gold. While Levy may not have known his sweet note to Regina King would go viral and launch a new SNL tradition, we are sure glad it did. You can see the initial note left by Levy which King shared to her Instagram upon finding it on the dressing room mirror below:
Dan Levy’s note simply says “Regina! You got this! Much love, Dan,” but the small vote of confidence speaks wonders. Levy even responded to Regina King’s post with another confidence boost, saying “Can’t wait to watch you knock it out of the park this weekend.”
It really is the thought that counts, because Regina decided the gesture was worthy of imitation as she left her own note for the next host of SNL, Rege-Jean Page. Page then followed King’s lead and posted the note to his Instagram with the same mirror image of himself next to the note that King had in her post. She follows Dan Levy’s confidence-boosting tone by hyping Page up, saying “You are going to be AMAZING! I’m a huge fan.” Check it out:
If that wasn't cute enough, the tradition was continued by Rege-Jean Page leaving a note for Nick Jonas, who was the next host of SNL after Page. Jonas followed in his predecessors' footsteps by capturing the following photo, highlighting the note’s message of “Just have the Best time.”
Since SNL is on a hiatus right now, we’ll have to wait and see if Nick Jonas continues the tradition of writing to the next host of the long running comedy show. Seeing as he did post his note on social media, it would only make sense that Maya Rudolph, who is set to host the next episode of SNL, will be welcomed with a note on the mirror of her dressing room, as well.
Saturday Night Live is set to come back from its hiatus later this month, on March 27th. Maya Rudolph, SNL vet and one of the stars of Netflix’s animated Big Mouth, is set to take the reins as host and will, hopefully, both receive a post-it from Nick Jonas and leave one behind for the next host, continuing Dan Levy’s simple, yet completely adorable tradition.
