Watch Jimmy Fallon and The Rock Give the Worst Graduation Speech of All Time

They play two high school students with the lowest GPAs, in 1989

Just in time for graduation season, Jimmy Fallon decided to spoof the typical commencement address with the help of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. On Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show, they performed as two high school students graduating in 1989 (after eight years in school.)

They ramble idiotically for several minutes and offer absolutely no helpful advice to their fellow graduates. Fallon does basically come up with the idea for Facebook — though the pair immediately dismisses it as a “big sack of never gonna happen.”

The speech may not offer any pearls of wisdom, but we appreciate it for the opportunity to watch Jimmy Fallon and The Rock act like total morons for five minutes.

Here’s the Vintage Jazz Version of ‘Lovefool’ You Had No Idea You Needed

It's actually quite great

The ’90s pop tune “Lovefool” is likely to get stuck in your head at really random times because it’s so damn catchy — but this vintage jazz cover might actually be better. It comes to us from Postmodern Jukebox, who recently gave us a Grease-style makeover of a Taylor Swift tune and a 1920s jazz rendition of a Coolio song.

This retro spin on “Lovefool” features vocalist Haley Reinhart accompanied by a full band, including a harp, trumpet, sax and trombone. The original version by the Cardigans is a 1990s staple — but this version really sounds like it could have been a 1940s classic.

Oh, and yeah: now “Lovefool” will be in your head for the rest of the week. Sorry.

Allow a Hilarious, Drunken Chris Pratt to Offer You Some Completely Useless Acting Tips

Warning: you'll be drunk off Chris Pratt's handsomeness after watching this video

Well, we totally called it: now that Chris Pratt is gearing up to promote his upcoming film Jurassic World, he’s doing bunch of weird and charming things. Like making this video for GQ, in which he gets drunk and then offers some top-notch acting advice.

Pratt explains how to act in just about every scenario: when you’re in a Jamba Juice and you see a T-Rex, when you’re in the desert and you see a snake, and when you get pulled over and you have weed in your glove compartment.

“This has been acting with Chris Pratt,” he concludes. “I hope it helps. I’m guessing it won’t. Just work out a lot and use sunscreen and roll the dice, man.”

Watch This Paddleboarder’s Extremely Close Encounter With an Orca

"He slowly crept up and grabbed the back of my board"

A New Zealand restaurant owner named Luke Reilly was doing some relaxing stand-up paddleboarding when an orca whale popped up out of nowhere. Naturally, things got a little less chill.

“He popped up about 10cm away from the back of my board,” Reilly told 3NEWS. “I was a bit nervous thinking, ‘what’s this guy going to do?'”

Reilly happened to have his GoPro with him, so he managed to film the encounter. He admits he was a “bit freaked out” while it was happening, but ultimately figured the animal was just curious.

This Woman Missed Graduation to Give Birth, So the College Brought Graduation to Her

Baby Milo arrived two weeks early

Juliet Smith was set to graduate from Guilford College this past Saturday when she got a bit of a surprise the night before: she went into labor.

Smith was out to dinner with her family Friday night, all set to arrive at her commencement at 7:30 the following morning when her water broke, ABC News reports. A few minutes before midnight, she gave birth to her son, Milo, two weeks before her June 9 due date.

Smith was obviously overjoyed about her new son, but was also quite disappointed about missing graduation after working so hard to earn her degree.

“I was so mad at him,” Smith said in a release. “And then I was upset with myself, because I didn’t want my first feeling toward my first son to be anger, but I’d been so excited to be a part of commencement for so long.”

Shortly after the official commencement, a group of teachers, deans and other faculty members arrived at the hospital to conduct a special ceremony for Smith. One professor even brought a tuba and played “Pomp and Circumstance.” He also played “Happy Birthday” to the newborn, because let’s not forget that there was a baby involved in all of this.

Watch This Store Clerk’s Hilarious Play-by-Play of a Robbery

"Here you go, you forgot this one sir"

When this store clerk in Utah was held at gunpoint, she remained calm and cooperated with the robber. But after he left the store — and was arrested a few minutes later — she managed to have a little fun with what we imagine was a traumatic experience. She went back over the security footage of the whole ordeal and gave it an extremely sarcastic play-by-play.

“I tried to keep him around as long as possible while pressing the emergency button,” the clerk explains on YouTube. You’ll see that she manages to stall him for several minutes, but not in time for the police to arrive. After he left the store, she called the police who found him a few minutes later at a carwash.

Props to this woman for managing to squeeze some humor out of a scary situation.

This Banjo Cover of ‘The Final Countdown’ Is Surprisingly Beautiful

Thanks to legendary banjo player Béla Fleck and his wife Abigail Washburn

Okay, so, just hear us out. This banjo cover of “The Final Countdown” — that irritatingly catchy ’80s jam — is actually lovely. Really, really lovely. The A.V. Club invited banjo legend Béla Fleck and his equally talented wife, Abigail Washburn, to perform the tune — and they totally crushed it.

Oh, Fleck and Washburn perform in ridiculous ’80s-style wigs to really evoke the spirit of the song.

Now, just try and watch the video without picturing Gob Bluth making a dramatic entrance.
