Video of the Day: Amy Poehler’s Hilarious Speech to Harvard Grads


Those lucky kids at Harvard University asked for and received Amy Poehler (an alum of Boston College) as one of the speakers at their Senior Class Day. Among the life advice the Parks and Rec star dished out — after telling the crowd, “just because you’re wicked smaaaht doesn’t mean you’re better than me” — was this pearl of wisdom: “Listen, say yes, live in the moment, make sure you play with people who have your back, make big choices early and often, and don’t start a scene where two people are talking about jumping out of a plane — start the scene having already jumped.” If you’re looking for a little late morning pick-me-up, click through to watch the full speech now.
