That’s just one element of “100% Fresh,” a collection of live performances that Sandler’s done, mainly around the LA area, over the past year. Armed with a Champion jacket, his trademark “funny” voice, and a flotilla of guitars acoustic and electric, the official trailer for his new special shows him playing to crowds of various sizes at both indoor and outdoor venues. (There’s also a quick shot of what looks like him busking at a subway depot, so look out for that, too.)
The special made waves back in April when Paul Thomas Anderson showed up at a taping for some additional camerawork. “100% Fresh” is directed by longtime Sandler collaborator Steven Brill.
Whether or not this special leans more toward “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” or “The Ridiculous 6” in the greater Adam Sandler Pantheon of Netflix Performances remains to be seen. But fans and curious bystanders won’t have long to wait: “100% Fresh” arrives on Netflix a week from today.
