Despite having won the honor of getting the President to guest speak at their school graduation, a kid falls asleep during Obama's speech at the ceremony. Since the speech was recorded, the student can be seen behind the President, yawning and dozing off.

Considering the bombardment of final papers and exams right before grad, it is no surprise that this sleep-deprived kid falls asleep during Obama's speech; it's probably the only chance he got to sit still! If it weren't for the clapping involved, he could have very well slept through the entire ceremony. Stats for Sleep-Deprived Virals Trending: Older & Buzzing
