Adam Sandler doesn't even need to try to be funny, he just is. And recently he's proved just that with a viral video of him shooting hoops...

However, the reasons behind the clip's hilariousness might not be why you'd think...

Have a look for yourselves.

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

Getty

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...

50 First Dates/Columbia Pictures

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...

Uncut Gems / A24

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.

But it seems as though he's given up the golf club and traded it for some long shirts and a basketball.

And recently, he has been the center of attention after a video of him shooting hoops has gone viral... But for all the wrong reasons.

First of all, the extra-long, extra baggy shorts...

To his weird court tactics...

His teammates weren't any better, to be honest...

A fan recorded the clip where Sandler can be seen setting a solid screen before getting the ball back at the top of the key.

​He fired a pass to a teammate waiting on the wing but he missed the shot. A bit of a letdown. People advised Sandler to find a better shooter after the ball didn't make it in.

Other clips also showed him getting hot under the collar... And under the pits.

Salmon isn't the best color for hiding sweat stains.
