Adam Sandler Pays Tribute to Chris Farley on Anniversary of His Death

Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler released a tribute song on Tuesday from his Netflix special “Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh” that was all about remembering “my good friend Chris Farley.”

As Sandler performed the song, clips played on a video screen of some of Farley’s famous characters from “Saturday Night Live” like Matt Foley, the Lunch Lady and his Chippendale’s audition alongside the late Patrick Swayze.

Sandler and Farley worked together on “SNL” in the early 1990s before Farley left the show in 1995. Farley also appeared briefly in the Sandler hit movie “Billy Madison.” He died at 33 of a drug overdose in 1997.

Sandler also somberly recalled the “last big hang” he had with his friend, which came at the wedding of “SNL” castmate Tim Meadows about six months before Farley’s death. “Nothing was harder than saying goodbye,” Sandler sang.
