The pair were inseparable in the 90s, having co-starred on variety show Saturday Night Live (SNL), and comedies Tommy Boy and Black Sheep.

In 2015, Spade took to Instagram to commemorate his relationship with Farley during the 20th anniversary of Tommy Boy‘s release.

He posted a picture of the movie poster and wrote: "I was very lucky to be in this movie with one of the all-time funniest mother f***, the late, great Chris Farley. It’s hard to read but on the poster it says, 'David let’s stick together!' Signed by Chris."

“We gave each other autographed posters as a joke back then,” Spade continued. “Now I see it in my office and skim over it because if I think about that for more than 5 seconds I’ll start bawling. Like now. As Chris would say, what a p****. #RIP," Spade added.

However, despite their close bond, Spade did not attend Farley's funeral.
