Charlie Day’s Commencement Speech, “I Don’t Give A Sh*t” [Video]

Charlie Day Speech

It is that time of year again. Popular faces will stand before bright-eyed and bushy-tailed graduates giving them all great and not so great advice for how to handle the future. Sandra Bullock spoke for New Orleans high school students and now Charlie Day for college graduates at his alma mater Merrimack College.

Day’s speech has been circulating social media feeds for two days now and the recent college grads, mostly anyone in their early 20s are eating his words up. His top Facebook trend doesn’t look like it will be leaving anytime soon. This almost 20 minute long video is worth the watch.

The speech is laced with Charlie Day humor, similar to what you see from his character Charlie Kelly on It’s Always Sunny In Philidelphia. Example 1:

Even though a majority of his advice is shaped in a humorous fashion, he offers overall wise advice: don’t be afraid of failure. Fear should not be a feeling keeping you away from trying anything. Much like Day’s choice to work on Sunny as a struggling New York actor.

“I have expanded my mind, destroyed my liver, but I never gave up.”

day decided to continue with his friends making home made videos of what eventually turned into It’s Always Sunny In Philidelphia instead of accepting the offer for “Life on a Stick.” Sunny has 10 seaons with another 2 on the way, while “Life on a Stick” didn’t last 6 episodes.

“You cannot let a fear of failure, or the fear or comparison, or the fear of judgment stop you from doing what’s going to make you great.”
