Rock, the superstar comedian who also worked at "SNL" during Sandler's tenure, joined him on stage for a chorus of "I got fired".
SNL's official account shared the song, which has more than 7 million views. "Maybe they were sick of Canteen Boy, but I think they just hate the jews", Sandler sings in his trademark fashion. "I guess NBC had enough Crazy Spoon Head and the songs I sang on the news".
"I was fired, I was fired, I was fired by NBC, then I went on "In Living Color", and three weeks later they took it off TV", Rock sang. And the show completely reconfigured itself around Sandler's particular (exquisitely silly) comedic style, with a few vintage '90s characters brought back, a few musical moments, a few brilliant understated sketches, and a dollop of sentimentality tying the whole thing together.
Mirroring Sandler's initial performance on his Netflix special, clips of Farley's iconic characters like Matt Foley and the Lunch Lady appeared along with endearing family photos on a screen while the actor and comedian reminisced on their friendship, his humor, and untimely death.More news: Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to miss Barcelona semi-final

"I got fired. I was sacked".
Sandler told The Daily Beast in 2014 he still doesn't know why he and Farley were fired from the show in 1995. When Sandler finally squashed whatever beef he had with Lorne Michaels and returned to host the show on May 4, he proved the degree to which his firing was an incredible mistake.
While Opera Man may root for the Knicks' return to National Basketball Association contention, Sandler himself is among the many celebrities who frequent the Staples Center in Los Angeles to watch LeBron James and the Lakers.
Kristen Wiig, Jimmy Fallon and Shawn Mendes all made cameos in one skit that paid tribute to Sandler's many "SNL" and movie characters.
