Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon Salute the Troops With Patriotic Garth Brooks Parody on 'Tonight Show'
By Desiree Murphy
Adam Sandler is honoring those who serve us -- with a silly song, that is!
The comedic actor was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, and needless to say, his appearance was memorable. In honor of Fleet Week, Fallon and Sandler saluted the troops by dedicating a twangy song to them called "Friends on All Bases," a parody of Garth Brooks' popular country track, "Friends in Low Places."
Dressed in dark brown cowboy hats while strumming on their guitars to an audience full of servicemen and women, the hilarious duo pulled out all the stops for the performance. Fallon started the song, singing, "Well, I'll tell you the truth, I love all the troops, protecting the land, sea and air."
Sandler quickly chimed in, belting out, "Now you're back in town, keeping us safe and sound from that crazy a** Elmo in Times Square."
But the best part of the cover song was the catchy verse -- "'Cause I've got friends on all bases, from the Navy up to the Air Force aces, and the Army greens, Coast Guard and Marines" -- and the references to Tinder, getting laid and going to the bar.
