David Spade says he is shocked by criticism he's received about a DirecTV commercial that features a scene from Tommy Boy of him and the late Chris Farley — whom he says would "be stoked" to be involved in the ad.

"Oh, my God if [Farley] was here, I guarantee he'd be stoked that this little movie is included," Spade tells People. "The movie is important to me, and I would hate to offend [anyone] because that's one of my favorite things I've ever done. So I would apologize to someone who took it that way."
