David Spade Remembers Chris Farley and Origin Of 'Fat Guy In A Little Coat'

David Spade remembers his friend Chris Farley and tells Conan O'Brien about the story behind the "Fat guy in a little coat."

"Chris was always doing that bit to me at work," Spade begins recalling their time together on 'Saturday Night Live'.

"We shared an office, and you had to walk through our office to get to Chris Rock and Adam Sandler's office. So these 2 microscopic offices were back to back, and Chris' desk was behind mine, and he didn't really know how to write, or read really, but he would come in bored, because I would have to write my sketches to try to get on but they would always let him on."

"So he would get behind me and be bored, everyone would write him sketches, and he would say 'Davey… turn around,' and I said 'if this is Fat Guy in a Little Coat, I'm not turning around, it's not funny anymore."

"And he would say 'No, I've got a whole new thing I'm doing.' And then I’d turn around, and it would be him in my Levi jacket, and he would say 'Fat guy in little coat! Don't you give up on it!'"
