Alyson Hannigan felt like she's on date with Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce as she couldn't contain her excitement when she heard "American Pie" nod in new song 'So High School'.

AceShowbiz - Alyson Hannigan, fondly remembered for her role as Michelle Flaherty in the iconic "American Pie" series, recently experienced a surreal moment when Taylor Swift referenced the 1999 comedy in her song "So High School." The track, a part of Swift's latest album, "The Tortured Poets Department," left Hannigan quite literally freaking out.

As a self-proclaimed Swiftie, Hannigan had eagerly awaited the album's release. "I had my little countdown waiting for the album to drop," she told Vulture. To ensure uninterrupted listening, she even texted her kids, "Don't bug me, say 'good night,' just pretend I'm not here."

She described her reaction after first hearing "So High School" as sheer astonishment. "I was like, 'What?!' I thought maybe I was still sort of sleeping and imagining it. But when I heard it, I was freaking out," she said, adding that she woke up her entire family, only to find them less enthusiastic than she'd hoped.

Her excitement didn't stop there. After a mutual freakout session with a friend, Hannigan experienced another pinch-me moment courtesy of her "Dancing with the Stars" partner, Sasha Farber. Farber posted a video of them driving around, gleefully listening to "So High School," and the post was liked by none other than Taylor Swift. "Like, why wasn't it on my feed?!" she joked.

Reflecting on the cultural impact of "American Pie," Hannigan noted how fitting it was that Swift and her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce, could connect through the film. "Basically, I was on the date with Travis and Taylor," she quipped.

"Well, it's not like I ever sat there and thought, 'Oh, I wonder if Taylor and Travis have watched American Pie.' But I do have to say that in the past 25 years, people ask me, 'Oh, what do you get recognized for?' And I always say that it depends where I am. If I were at a football game, it would definitely be American Pie," she mused.

The legacy of "American Pie" seems as enduring as ever, given its memorable characters and quotable lines. Hannigan recalled her initial audition process for the movie. Despite her frustrations with early critiques about her performance being "too quirky," she remained intrigued by Michelle's character. "I loved the way she talked. There were question marks after pretty much most of her sentences, including the ones about her times at band camp," she explained.

The "American Pie" legacy in pop culture, coupled with Hannigan's enthusiasm for Swift's music, perfectly encapsulates a full-circle moment for fans of both the film and the artist. As Hannigan put it, her fangirl reaction essentially made her feel like she was on a date with Travis and Taylor, blending her iconic past with Swift's contemporary influence.
