How did I miss this? Oh yeah, I’ve been so busy lately that I feel like I’ve been living under a rock most times. My co-worker came in today and started talking about it, knowing that I’m a big Adam Sandler and SNL fan, but I had to stop her and say “what are you talking about?” We immediately pulled up this clip, and it made us laugh and tear up a little bit.
Adam Sandler returned to Saturday Night Live for the first time in 24 years over the weekend, but the highlight was Sandler’s tribute to another former SNL cast member – Chris Farley.
Sandler strapped on a guitar and performed a musical tribute to Farley, referencing the late comic’s classic characters like Matt Foley and the Lunch Lady.
Sandler couldn’t help but get choked up during the last verse, where he sang about his ‘last hang’ with Farley, at Tim Meadows’ wedding.
The song originally appeared on Sandler’s Netflix special 100% Fresh. Farley died of a drug overdose in 1997.
One: I can’t believe it’s been 24 years since Adam has been on SNL. Two: I can’t believe it’s been 22 years since Farley died. Crazy. Time is just flying by, isn’t it?
