Jimmy Fallon and “The Rock” (Sort of) Deliver Oneonta High School Commencement Address
Party like it's 1989, Oneonta High School! Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson delivered a commencement speech for the 1989 class of Oneonta High on Thursday's episode of "The Tonight Show" on NBC.
Fallon played the role of Bobby Ristick, and "The Rock" played the role of Logan Duffy. There were no specific references to Oneonta during the sketch, but they did the high school mascot correct. It's nice to be on late night TV, right? We'll take it!
The duo were the students with the lowest GPAs, and told their classmates to not get caught up in computers, and they even alluded to the creation of Facebook.
"Once we leave, a lot of us will never see each other again. What do you think? One day we are going to be able to keep in touch by using some magical book with a bunch of faces in it? What would you even call that," Ristick (Fallon) asked Duffy ("The Rock").
No commencement ceremony is complete without a little music, right? So the pair fist bumped to New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi's 'Livin' on a Prayer.' Bon Jovi, of course, broke out his guitar during a commencement address at Rutgers University earlier this week.
So, Oneonta, what did you think?
