Comedian Will Ferrell is one of the most hilarious human beings on the planet. That’s an indisputable fact.
So when he agreed to give the 2017 commencement speech at USC, you knew something great was bound to happen. This weekend, Ferrell gave his speech and he certainly didn’t disappoint.
Ferrell, who graduated from the university in 1990 with a Sports Information degree, mixed a positive message, jokes, and a rendition of “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.
It had a little bit of everything, and it was all great.
Ferrell received an honorary degree from the university and in typical Ferrell fashion, this is what he says it allows him to do, via the Orange County Register:
“I’ve been informed that I can now perform minimally invasive surgery, at any time or any place, even if people don’t want it. … The next time I’m flying and they ask if there’s a doctor on board, I can now confidently leap to my feet and scream, ‘I am a doctor! What can I do? Yes, no problem, I can absolutely deliver that baby!’ Hopefully, it will be on United Airlines.”
