Best HS Graduation Speech Ever! Weber High Graduation 2015

Second student speaker Chase Dahl at the Weber High School graduation for the Class of 2015 (app. 580 graduates). The event was hosted and filmed at the Dee Events Center of Weber State University on May 19, 2015.
(Film produced and distributed by CIS-COM Digital Media. Copyright not claimed by recording company, and permission to use this clip granted to me by the company in question. Content is my own original work.)
The theme was "Leave a Legacy" from Tavis Smiley's quote: "The choices we make about the lives we live determine the kinds of legacies we leave."
1. Did you literally title your own speech the "Best HS Graduation Speech Ever"?
- Yes.
2. Can only valedictorians give speeches?
- No. Usually that is the case, however this particular school always has try-outs after which speakers are selected by judges. Valedictorians are generally given preference, but the speaker here is not a valedictorian (:
3. What's his Twitter?
- @ChaseDahlaBillz, but nobody does Twitter anymore. Try Instagram (@ChaseDahlaBillz).
4. Did you really use popular and controversial issues and topics of the time to form hyperbolic jokes about graduating?
- Yes, it was done just like that.
5. Is this really the "best HS graduation speech ever"?
- Yes, probably.
6. He's full of himself, right?
- Oh yes, of course.
7. Is he gay?
- I am straighter than the line of the graph f(x) = x. Thanks for asking, though.
8. Was the title at least in part a social experiment?
- Yes it was.
9. Was the title at least in part a joke for the originally intended audience of the speaker's friends, family, etc., and not actually a shameful attempt to become famous by using a click-bait title?
- Yup, good job. Wow.
10. What have you done since graduation?
- Shortly after this, I left on a volunteer religious mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (you'd probably know them as the Mormons. ...Yup, those guys!) I was assigned for 2 years to Japan where I learned to speak Japanese and taught about Jesus Christ. It was one of the hardest but most rewarding things I've ever done. I returned home in Summer 2017 and have been going to college since. I'm plan to get a Masters in Japanese and a Juris Doctor to work as an International Lawyer. I am also an artist, mostly doing portraits and figure drawings/paintings, and I take commissions to help pay for college. Had to return mid-Study Abroad in Japan thanks to #coronavirus and making it through. That's pretty much it.

    I totally did not expect this to blow up! 1 Million views and counting, and I've received hundreds of flattering messages from all over the world! The title was really just a joke but it's amazing to see that what I had to say means something to so many people. Just have to say thank you for all the love and support and humor! #splendid PS for commonly asked questions, check out the video description.

    Thank you Chase. Best Graduation Speech that I have ever heard since the graduation speech given at my Hopewell High School, Aliquippa, PA graduation in 1970. I realize I just dated myself, but reaching 69, has been an adventure. I pray that your life has also been an epic journey and an adventure since you graduated! Best of Luck little buddy and may God Bless You all the days of your life!

    To the class of 2020 (and maybe 2021) who have to pick up their diplomas via drive-thru in your mom's embarrassingly over-decorated Honda Odyssey, just remember this one thing: It could've been _Ebola_ we were dealing with instead....which, if you don't already know, has a mortality rate of anywhere between 25-90% compared to covid's 2%. So, atleast half of the people you know would be dead, and instead of being sad about not getting to walk across a stage in your gaudy monotone Snuggie, you'd be trying to figure out how to keep yourself alive without the use of electricity(which includes the internet) because the grid shut down. Hope you were a boy/girl scout when you were younger because those skills are about to become _very_ important. If you still feel completely cheated from the "normal life experience", google the symptoms of Ebola and how it kills you. That should do the trick. But seriously, high school isn't even the good part, and if it was, you've peaked and it's all down hill from here.

    Why do you americans have to make a big deal out of everything. Here in The Netherlands high school pupils don't get to give speeches. They just have their mentor say something briefly about them, get their certificate and that's it. Heck, even at university our students don't get to give speeches. We simply take our BA or MA, shake hands (well, in non-covid times) and that's it. It is only once you get your PhD that you get to give a speech. Get off it guys. This is too much cringe..

    @Frans Delt I actually agree haha. I meant to be kinda sarcastic about the high school achievements in the speech. by exaggerating our struggles and accomplishments. Hopefully to put into perspective for people a little bit more of what's really important
