Chances are every time you try on something that’s a few sizes too small, you still croon, “Fat guy in a little coat! Fat guy in a little coat!”

Yesterday (Mar. 31) the fictional mismatched duo from one of Farley’s greatest comedies, Tommy Boy, turned 20 years old. That’s right, this one hit the big screen back in ’95 (feeling old yet?)

David Spade took note of the day by posting a a picture of a signed poster from the movie on Instagram. Spade writes that he and Farley had exchanged posters as a little joke, and then goes on to commemorated the life of the comedic genius. “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 pussy #RIP”

Thanks for the laughs Farley.
