Bill Pullman's Independence Day Commencement Address May Be The Best Of The Season

Video: 'Tis the season for graduation in the US. That means commencement addresses. There are the ones by politicians which stir up controversy, the ones by comedians that go viral by being funny, and then there are the vast majority -- boring speeches that the mostly drunk grads will never remember. Bill Pullman found another route.

On Saturday, Pullman gave the address at Warren Wilson College. And here is a man who knows he will never give a speech as good or as famous as the one written for him in Independence Day. So, of course, he quoted it. (The relevant portion is at the 3:44 mark.)

Pullman even starts by saying it's something he's been wanting to do for "a couple of decades".

Godspeed everyone. Do not go gently into that good night.
