That’s right, its graduation season and Will Ferrell maybe leading the pack for best commencement speech. He returned to his alma matter(graduated in 1990) and not only delivered a commencement speech,but also received an honorary doctorate ahead of Friday’s ceremony. The prestigious honor is one that Will obviously takes very seriously: “I’ve already instructed my wife and my children from this point they have to address me as Dr. Ferrell,” Ferrell told the crowd. “There will be no exceptions, especially at our children’s various school functions, and when opening Christmas presents.” He wrapped up the almost 30 minute address by singing “I will Always Love You.” I do need to make a correction to this video and ALL of the news outlets out there. Its Dolly Parton’s song that Whitney Houston covered, not Whitney Houston’s song.
