Watch Adam Sandler’s Tear-Jerking Tribute to Chris Farley on ‘SNL’

  • Adam Sandler Fired SNL

In his opening monologue, Sandler said being on "SNL" was "the greatest time of my life" and also addressed his firing in 1995 with a song called - appropriately - "I was sacked".

The fact of the matter is, he was sacked.

In his return to "SNL" as the host on Saturday night, Sandler remembered his late friend.

Sandler's song recalled some of Farley's most memorable SNL sketches while photos and video clips played in the background. "Without him, there would be no Lunch Lady in Lunch Lady Land, you know I'm thinking about, I'm thinking about my boy Chris Farley". It was around this time that old castmate Chris Rock came on stage to help sing about how he was sacked too (and about how he joined In Living Color and it was then taken off the air three weeks after).

Earlier in the show, Sandler brought back "SNL" alum Chris Rock for his opening monologue to join in on a song about being fired from the show.

Sandler then wrapped up the tune with a jab at TV network NBC, and crooned, "NBC said I was done, then I made over $4 billion at the box office, so I guess you could say I won".

But, he tells Peter, "I don't think Tony would've done what he did if he didn't know that you would be here after he was gone". There's plenty of time for actual explanations when the movie launches, and it'll hit theaters on July 2nd if you forgot.

"On Saturday night my man would always deliver", Sandler sang. We kind of understood because we did our thing.

Through his five-year tenure, he solidified his SNL legacy by bringing to life many notable characters, including Opera Man, Canteen Boy, and the Gap Girls.

"I was fired, I was fired, I was fired, so sad to tell/ Well I never saw it coming, I got fired from 'S.N.L.'" he sang.

Solemnly playing his guitar, Sandler sang a musical tribute to the famed comic, who died of a drug overdose in 1997 at the age of 33.

"And if we make enough noise, maybe he'll hear us", Sander sang, pausing for applause, his voice faltering a bit. While it may have been a long time since he was a cast member on the sketch show that gave him his start, he isn't forgetting about the past - especially his friend and former cast member, the late Chris Farley.
