Say Hi to Your Mother For Me, Harvard: Andy Samberg's Class Day Speech
Thursday, May 24, 2012
Harvard's Class Day, the celebration that occurs the day before Commencement, is known for the celebrity speakers that it brings in. This year, Rep. Barney Frank was one of those speakers. Former Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg was the other speaker. In a roughly 21-minute-long speech, Samberg ranged from topics as varied as majors that no longer had any use in the world to mocking Yale for being mole people.
Attendees were lucky enough to hear Samberg break out three of his most well known impressions: Mark Zuckerberg, Mark Wahlberg and Nicholas Cage. Yes, Harvard students have now been told to say hi to their mothers for Wahlberg.
My college graduation speaker was Juan Williams, who at the time was an NPR talking head. Some schools get all the luck. Although, you don't always need to go to a college like Harvard to find great success in life. "I went to Santa Cruz, then I transferred to film school ... and I'm rich," Samberg informed his audience. Well put, Andy Samberg.
