What's That Name?

This is a great Saturday Night Live sketch:

As usual, I was tempted to check the comments section.  I wanted to see if anyone else had observed how Bill Hader seemed to almost break around the 4:00 mark.  And, in fact, YouTube user theBeesKnees had written: "The "problematic bachelors/squad" line was 100% inserted by Mulaney last minute to make Hader break. I'm calling it now hahahhaa."  And commenter Henry had written: "They almost broke Bill Hader with 'The Squad.'"

Is this some sort of built-in human psychological need?  The need to check if other people are seeing the same thing you're seeing?  It reminds me of the subreddit /r/YouSeeingThisShit, which is devoted to videos of people looking around to see if other people are seeing the same shit they're seeing.
