Spade -- No Regrets on Farley Direct TV Ad

11/4/2009 2:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

David Spade says he has no regrets about resurrecting a classic scene from "Tommy Boy" -- featuring the late, great Chris Farley -- for a controversial DirecTV ad, telling TMZ that offending people was never his intention.

We got David outside Boa last night, where he told us Farley's family and the director of "Tommy Boy" all gave their seal of approval for the spot.

He wasn't lying -- Kevin Farley, Chris' bro, was there too and said the commercial was "an honor to my brother."

Mayu, thank you for your respectful comment informing me that that line is from the movie. No, I haven't seen the film, so I wouldn't have known.

You couldn't just mention that without being a freakin ass about it?

Hey Esther, maybe it was David Spades character in Tommy Boy?

Can't wait to see Michael Jackson reanimated in a new Pepsi commercial, brought to you by people who claim to love him.

That's what's wrong with the Spade/Farley thing.

Can't wait to see it, I still love Chris Farley, my heart was broken when he died. Seeing him on TV again will be bittersweet. I don't see how anyone could be offended.
