Along With Adam Sandler, Fellow ‘Grown Ups’ Star Selma Hayek Pays Tribute to Alec Musser
Much like Adam Sandler’s Instagram post, fellow Grown Ups star Selma Hayek paid tribute to Alec Musser by posting a video of his hilarious scene.
“In loving memory of Alec Musser,” she wrote. “He was so kind, professional, and absolutely hilarious. His early departure breaks my heart. I feel so blessed that I got to meet him. My sincere condolences to his family and loved ones for this great loss.”
In the video, Musser is seen walking up to Hayek and the rest of the Grown Ups ladies in his short trunks. He then declares in an unexpectedly high-pitched voice, “What’s up ladies? I’m from Sascatchatoon! That’s up in Canada, eh? You American ladies ever been up to Sascatchatoon? Yeah, you American ladies would enjoy being in Sascatchatoon.”
The ladies had no choice but to crack up laughing.
