It’s already that time of year again. The air has warmed, the grass has turned back to green, and, after four long year, countless students will finally be graduating over the next couple of months. 

And that means graduation ceremonies. Long, drawn out, boring ceremonies. 

Blimey Cow is not looking forward to the next graduation ceremony he is obligated to go to. Actually, he hates graduation, and explains why in this new video.

Unsurprisingly, more than a few viewers agree with him.

At Grand Valley State University’s commencement ceremony, graduating students were asked to spell out the pronunciations of their hard to say names. 

Kelsey Elise just happened to slip in ‘freaking awesome‘ into her name, prompting the auditorium to burst out in laughter when the announcer actually fell for her spelling prank. The story is featured on HuffPost and TheDailyWhat

High school band String Theory of North Penn High School performed a very special medley, titled Circle Of Life, for their graduating class during the end of the year wrap up Reflections program.

For twelve enjoyable minutes, they played a special twelve pop song medley, one from each year that they were in school.

After opening with the Lion King’s Circle Of Life, they started with 1999 and The Backstreet Boys’ I Want It That Way, and continued through 2003 with Outcast’s Hey Yea, and wrapped it all up with the 2000 Vitamin C hit, Graduation Song Friends Forever.

You know you’re doing something right when the audience immediately started singing along.  

 

 

 

Update 6/16: Better video has been released.

There are plenty of commencement speeches given by politicians, comedians, and celebrities, but what about the Internet? You know YouTube has reached the big leagues when famous YouTubers are asked to give a commencement speech. 

And no YouTubers are more worthy of being the first to speak at graduation than comedy musicians . The dynamic duo were invited to speak at the 2012 graduation of their former high school, Harnett Central, located in Angier, North Carolina.

Naturally, they snuck in one of their songs.
