“We worked with both Taylor and Travis Kelce before they got together,” he said. “…She kinda told us she watched his SNL episode and saw him in our video and was like, ‘Oh, this guy seems funny.'”

Marshall joked that his comedy group “a little bit brought them together.”

Both Kelce and Swift have a history with SNL.
