Kardashians and Hadids should look out as a new street style icon is in town. Google’s Year in Search report for 2021 compiles the year’s top trending searches. It covers across categories including news, entertainment, sports, and more.
Adam Sandler is at the top of the list, and it seems people couldn’t stop Googling about him. Fans, at least, want to know what the Happy Madison mogul is wearing.
The 55-year-old comedy king, came out on top in the celebrity outfits category this year. Britney Spears was in number 2, Harry Styles in number 6, and Lizzo in number 9.
Adam might not be known for his fashion on red carpets or his Instagram selfies in head-to-toe designer looks. This placement isn’t entirely surprising either as his everyday outfits manage to make headlines regularly. The Uncut Gems actor rocked an oversized red North Face hoodie, baggy basketball shorts, and sneakers to visit a Long Island IHOP location.
Then there’s Sandler’s well-documented love of pickup basketball. In May, he went viral after showing off his hoop skills in a huge pink polo shirt and supersized Under Armour shorts, to social media’s utter delight. “Not gonna lie, Adam Sandler is a fashion icon? A trailblazer? Dare I say the moment?” one fan tweeted that same month, while another wrote, “People who ‘love’ fashion but insult Adam Sandler….. clearly you don’t have taste.”
The term sandlecore in TikTok will prove his fame amongst teens. Teens in TikTok, couldn’t get enough of the 50 First Dates funnyman’s signature striped polos, XXL sports shorts, and tube socks this summer. Sandler’s chosen uniform is especially intriguing when you consider his estimated net worth of $420 million.
Trends for clothes keep changing and nowadays oversized clothes are in fashion. When famous dudes are paying stylists to dress them in identical suits, Sandler always looks exactly like, well, himself.
