Chris Farley’s Original “Van Down By The River” Sketch Is Even Better Than The SNL Version

It appears Matt Foley was in that van a lot longer than we thought.

The sketch, titled “Motivation,” takes place on Chicago’s famed The Second City stage, birthplace of many a Saturday Night Live alum. The video (uploaded by The Second City) marks the date as July 26, 1990, which makes it almost a full three years in between the video and when the sketch would air on SNL in 1993.
