What does Olivia Rodrigo‘s Guts World Tour have in common with movie theaters? Allow her to show you — with a little help from Nicole Kidman.

The 21-year-old pop star hilariously re-created Kidman’s viral AMC Theaters speech — a dramatic video of which plays onscreen before each showing at the company’s locations across the United States — in a TikTok video posted Tuesday. “We come to this place … for magic,” Rodrigo mouths along to a recording of the actress’ monologue in the clip, which finds her wandering around the latest venue to host her Guts trek: Centre Bell Arena in Quebec.

“We come to AMC Theaters to laugh, to cry, to care,” she continues, testing out different seats in the arena and taking bites from an enormous bag of popcorn.

Meanwhile, the “Drivers License” singer’s touring crew diligently puts together her stage in the background. “That indescribable feeling we get when the lights begin to dim,” she adds, modeling a tank top with Kidman’s opening line printed across the chest. “We go somewhere we’ve never been before — not just entertained, but somehow reborn. Together.”

“ily montreal,” she captioned the clip.

Rodrigo is just the latest to pay tribute to the Moulin Rouge star’s AMC campaign, which has inspired many memes and re-creations (see Saturday Night Live‘s take here) since launching in 2021. Keith Urban, who is married to Kidman, opened up in a November appearance on Criss Angel’s Talking Junkies podcast how the ad came to be.

“She did it because she loves movies, we love movies,” he explained. “And it was hard times for the theaters. So AMC asked her if she’d do an AMC commercial, and it was a no-brainer for her to be a part of that … Never in a million years [was she] expecting that to be this cultural thing.”

In February, AMC announced plans to execute three new promo videos starring Kidman.

Rodrigo’s video comes less than a week after she dropped the new deluxe edition of her sophomore album Guts, which first arrived in September and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The revamped project includes five previously unreleased tracks: “Obsessed,” “Girl I’ve Always Been,” “Scared of My Guitar,” “Stranger” and “So American.”

In another recent TikTok clip, the former Disney star performed the latter song — which is rumored to be inspired by Louis Partridge — on acoustic guitar. “He laughs at all my jokes and he says I’m so American,” she sings, seemingly in a hotel room on the road. “Oh God, it’s just not fair of him to make me feel this much.”
