In this highly entertaining comedic inspirational commencement speech, comedian and SNL performer Andy Samberg gives the graduating class of 2012 at Harvard quite a show. While he jokes on the finality of graduating from university and the vague degrees some graduates leave university with, Samberg does highlight the distinguished careers that many Harvard graduates go on to achieve.

In this comedic inspirational commencement the funnyman addresses the challenges facing graduates of today -- the tough economic times, the struggle of the healthcare system and the equality issues facing the political field of America. Yet Samberg, with his classic sarcastic wit, highlights these but also speaks on the importance of education in today's marketplace.

During the commencement address, he also draws on the inspiration of some Harvard alumni that are currently relevant: Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Bill Gates of Microsoft and more. Stats for The Value of Education Trending: Older & Mild
