Adam Sandler met a number of lifelong friends on “Saturday Night Live,” including David Spade and Rob Schneider. But one of his closest pals on the late-night show, Chris Farley, died of an overdose two years after Sandler left the program in 1995. Farley was 33.
In his return to “SNL” as the host on Saturday night, Sandler remembered his late friend. After an hour and a half of silliness, Sandler closed out the episode with a touching tribute song about Farley and the duo’s friendship.
The song, which Sandler originally performed on his Netflix special, “100% Fresh,” highlighted many of the late comic’s most iconic characters and sketches from “SNL.”
However, Sandler also recalled Farley’s hard-partying days that led to his death and the heartbreak from attending his friend’s funeral.
“You’re a legend like you wanted, but I still wish you were here with me, and we were getting on a plane to go shoot ‘Grown Ups 3,’” Sandler sang, as images and video of Farley played on a screen behind him. “Life ain’t the same without you, boy. That’s why I’m singing about my boy, Chris Farley.”
