Sandler came out with just a guitar and stood next to a television screen that played clips of Farley as he sang his tune.
“He was a one-man party, you know who I’m talking about: I’m talking about my man, Chris Farley,” Sandler sang.
As he went through the song, Sandler made reference to many of Farley’s best known “SNL” sketches. He sang, “On Saturday night, my man would always deliver, whether he was the bumblebee girl or he was living in a van down by the river. He loved the Bears and Ditka, danced at Chippendale’s with Swayze, when they replaced his Folgers, he went full-on crazy.”
Sandler also talked about how he’s shared clips of his good friend with his kids: “Hey buddy, life’s moved on but you still bring us so much joy, make my kids laugh with your YouTube clips and ‘Tommy Boy.’ And when they ask me who is the funniest guy I ever knew, I tell them hands down, without a doubt, it’s you.”
He ended the song by imploring the crowd to cheer for Farley, saying, “If we make enough noise, maybe he’ll hear us.”
