Helen Mirren, Will Ferrell Receive Honorary Degrees

Comedian Will Ferrell has delivered the commencement ceremony address at The University of Southern California.

Among the targets of his tongue-in-cheek barbs were Donald Trump’s Trump University and United Airlines.
“The next time I’m flying and they ask if there is a doctor on board I can now confidently leap to my feet and scream ‘I am a doctor, what can I do.’ ‘Yes, no problem, I can absolutely deliver that baby.’ Hopefully, it will be on United Airlines,” the actor said.
Ferrell also delivered a passionate rendition of “I Will Always Love You.”
The event, which took place on the university’s Los Angeles campus on Friday, also featured actor Dame Helen Mirren, who received an honorary degree.
Previous recipients include director Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Clint Eastwood, Robert Zemeckis, composer John Williams and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

More than 60,000 people, including graduates, their families and friends, attended the event on campus.
