Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson Give a 1989 Commencement Speech
Posted on May 23, 2015
Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson gave a hilarious spoof of classic graduation speeches on The Tonight Show Friday night. At the 1989 commencement ceremony for Oneonta High School first the valedictorian gave her speech. Then the two students with the lowest GPAs in the class got to address the graduating class.
Bobby Ristick (Jimmy) and Logan Duffy aka Deltron 3000 (Dwayne) share their deep thoughts with the class. After all they've been in high school for 8 years and they know what's what. Jimmy does a perfect impersonation of Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and the Rock does a great dumb jock with a severe case of crazy eyes.
Logan tells the student to, "focus on the future...don't get caught up in fads that won't last like computers. No dumb box of wires will be around in ten years." Bobby focused on the future. He said, "My fellow students, it's time to say goodbye. Once we leave, a lot of us will never see each other again. What do you think one day we'll all keep in touch with a a magical book with a bunch of faces in it? What would you even call that?" Logan says he would call it, "a big sack of never going to happen." He also said he would become "this generation's O.J. Simpson."
Their advice to the students was to become adept in either kung fu or karate, it's not really clear as they do not seem to know the difference. Sadly, Logan accidentally punched Bobby in the face instead of the stomach during the demonstration portion of the speech. Logan then explained that the future is now. Then it got really ridiculous. They noted that big questions still remain about life, such as "how do you throw out a trash can?" It's really funny, take a look:
