Want to love Adam Sandler again? Watch his musical tribute to Letterman

New, 25 comments

Last night on The Late Show with David Letterman, Adam Sandler returned to his musical comedy roots to bid farewell to the soon-to-be retired late night host. The song he wrote is touching, a little lewd in the cutest ways and genuinely funny.

Press play above to see a nervous, emotional Sandler sing an ode to David Letterman, whose last show will air next Wednesday, May 20. Stephen Colbert will replace the longtime host on Sept. 8.

Sandler is teaming up with Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan for Pixels, a movie about an alien invasion that takes the form of classic arcade characters like Donkey Kong and Pac-Man. For more on Pixels, you can watch its first trailer, which debuted in March.
