Read on to check out the video and the incredible response it received...

Now, we all know and love Adam Sandler for one thing and one thing only...

imdb

And that's for being the king of comedy.

You name an iconic comedy...


And Sandler has been in it!

​The New York-born actor first made a name for himself when he appeared in Airheads in 1994...

And he went on to star in some absolute classics, including in The Wedding Singer (1998), 50 First Dates (2004), I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007), and Just Go With It (2011).

Sandler has also taken on some more serious roles, of course...

Including the 2019 gritty thriller, Uncut Gems.

Even though the actor narrowly missed out on an Oscar nomination for his impressive role in the critically acclaimed movie, it went on to be a huge success nevertheless.

But there's one movie that Sandler is really recognized from...


And that is, of course, Happy Gilmore.

Released in 1996, the comedy tells the story of hot-headed ice hockey player Happy Gilmore, who is played by Sandler.

His ice hockey career, and ultimately his life, is going absolutely nowhere due to his bad temper. But when his beloved grandmother loses her home due to unpaid taxes, he needs to figure out a way to raise the funds in order to buy her house back.

This is what introduces Gilmore to the world of golf...

And his incredible power drive makes him a sensation on the golf course which immediately starts earning him some serious money.

The downside, however, is that his hot-headed hockey mentality doesn't go well with the P.G.A. golf tour that he ends up competing in...


And his competitive rival, champion Shooter McGavin, makes life very hard for him and his beloved grandma.

All in all, it's a hilarious movie...


With a very sweet and heartwarming undertone.

It's been a staggering twenty-five years since it was released...

And amazingly so, it remains to be just as popular.

So much so...

That Sandler recently decided to perform an iconic Happy Gilmore golf shot to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the movie... and fans went wild.

The clip shows Sandler on a golf course, with him saying:

"Okay, it's been twenty-five years since I've done this... let's see what happens!"

The actor then gave it his best shot...

And just like his Happy Gilmore days, he hit the golf ball with some seriously impressive force.

"That went pretty well... you're dead Shooter!" he then said to the camera.

Shortly after the video was posted, the actor who played the infamous Shooter McGavin, Christopher McDonald, decided to reach out to Sandler.

"Twenty-five years, huh?" he said in character as Shooter, "let's see if it's Shooter's tour! Check it out."

He then putted a golf ball directly into a glass before boasting, "Shooter! Still got it!"

And to make things even better...

Ben Stiller, who played Gilmore's grandma's evil caretaker at her nursing home, tweeted saying:

"That's a beautiful swing, Mr. Gilmore. Congrats on your anniversary, and being such a loving grandson. So happy to be a small part of taking good care of her during her 'golden years'."

We love to see it!
