Improv Everywhere: Commencement Speaker Needed

How comfortable are you with public speaking? How about a spur-of-the-moment commencement address? Improv Everywhere recently staged a graduation ceremony in Bryant Park. The premise here is that the scheduled commencement speaker (John Kerry if anyone asked) missed his flight and couldn’t make it, so they asked random people to step in and do a speech. The ones who took on the challenge didn’t do half bad at all.

Some, if not all, of the people who volunteered could tell that this was a prank, but they still rose to the occasion and had a few inspiring things to relate to the graduating class. You can get more details at their website, like the story behind the woman who spoke entirely in Spanish. -via Tastefully Offensive
