Viral Video of the Day: Charlie Day's Graduation Speech

'It's Always Sunny' actor gives hilarious, heartfelt address

“You will get to receive wisdom, life lessons, knowledge… from a man who has made a living pretending to eat cat food,” actor Charlie Day warned in his commencement address to Merrimack College’s graduating class.

The co-creator and co-star of FX comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia couldn’t be more different from the illiterate, sociopathic musical savant he plays. He’s coherent and eloquent, offering anecdotes about his successes and failures after leaving Merrimack, including passing up a role in a now-canceled network sitcom in order to develop Sunny, currently shooting its tenth season.

Day's ultimate piece of advice to grads? “Fail, pick yourself up and fail again.”

Easy to say for a guy who pretends to eat cat food for a living.
