Jay BilasESPN analyst Jay Bilas offered up some of his usual hilarity during a commencement speech at Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday, May 10. Bilas, who played basketball and received a law degree from Duke University, delivered a speech befitting of his stature and offered up some words of wisdom to the graduates including telling the men in the audience to always where an undershirt underneath a suit and tie. “Don’t ask me why,” he said. “Just do it, It just works.”

One of the more entertaining parts of his keynote address is when he informed the crowd that he was selected to be the keynote speaker because “Dick Vitale was unavailable.” He went on to promise the crowd that he would stick to the five B’s of commencement speaking. “Be brief, brother. Be Brief!”

Bilas also quoted some great philosophers during his time on the stage, such as noted rapper Young Jeezy. “I’m reminded by what the urban philosopher Young Jeezy once said: ‘Real recognize real.'”

He also told the graduates how proud their families and parents were of their accomplishments and reminded them that “This is a great time to ask for money.”

Despite all of the jokes and and epic moments of hilarity, Bilas did offer the graduates a lot of great advice about life, their future careers, and how to be successful. He told to always make time for their families, to find something they love to do because if they did that “the money will follow, it almost always does.” He closed out his remarks by telling the graduates to thank all those who have helped them be successful, and reminded them to “ask those people for money now, while they are weak and defenseless.”

Bilas’s commencement speech has already become one of the most popular videos on the internet and has become legendary on the Twittersphere, with celebrities and fans giving him props for his entertaining and hilarious pieces of advice for the graduates and their families. Bilas is known for adding humor to serious situations and lightening up the mood, and he no doubt lived up to his reputation at Queens University, no doubt sending the Class of 2014 out into the real world with a smile on their face.
