If you're a graduating senior panicking about your future, hearing the following words from your own high school's alums might be reassuring: "We primarily make a living by posting videos on YouTube." Hey, if they can do it, you can too, right? Self-titled "Internetainers" Rhett and Link, a dynamic musical comedy duo on YouTube, returned to their alma mater, Harnett Central High School in Angier, North Carolina, to deliver the commencement speech this week -- and give hope to future Internet stars everywhere.
After delivering a short speech, in true YouTube fashion, the pair burst into an original song (skip to 3:42 in the video) with some rather sobering words about the transition to "the real world." They sang: "You're on your own, don't screw this up, You're on your own, good luck! (You're gonna need it.)"
When it comes to celebrating the milestone of finishing high school, the Class of 2012 isn't one to go out without making a statement. At Gulf Coast High School in Fort Myers, Florida, valedictorian Matt Colligan skipped a generic speech in favor of a rap song, which resulted in a standing ovation and YouTube hit. At Eastwood High School in El Paso, Texas, the graduating class launched into a flash mob during the ceremony. And at North Penn High School in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, a trio of students composed a 14-song medley of hit singles of each year from kindergarten to grade 12.
