Chris Farley Passed Away 20 Years Ago Today, Here's Him Explaining The Origins Of Matt Foley
While this video is super hilarious (the man was just a master at physical comedy - that prat fall is something else), it also shows how self-deprecating Chris Farley was of himself. A guy that talented and that strong of a star still felt the need to put himself down and it's just sad how things went for him. Just way too much talent for one man. He was undoubtedly the star of 90s SNL and without him guys like Sandler, Spade & Norm probably wouldn't have been elevated to the star level they are at nowadays. It's a shame Farley's ride was so much shorter.
I remember being in my seventh grade science class when I saw the USA Today of his death and just being absolutely blindsided. To think how short his movie resume was at that point and the potential he had to expand that would have been a real thrill to see. Still one of the biggest comedy losses ever.
