Adam Sandler and his daughters cover Taylor Swift’s “Lover”: Watch

Is there anything sweeter than a parent connecting with their children over modern music? It’s one thing when an adult teaches a kid about, say, Tom Petty, but when the shared experience goes the other way, it’s even more touching. Which makes watching Adam Sandler covering Taylor Swift’s “Lover” with his two daughters just about the purest thing you’ll see today. Turns out the Sandler clan are big Swifties. After the premiere of Sandler’s latest film, Uncut Gems, at the New York Film Festival on Thursday, the comedian took his daughters — 10-year-old Sunny and 13-year-old Sadie — to watch Swift perform on Saturday Night Live.
