High school and college seniors' final semesters came to an abrupt end due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced most educational institutions to cancel in-person graduation ceremonies.
Some schools are trying to hold events virtually, and stars have stepped up to help, offering to record videos or give their speeches over Zoom to make up for the missing live experience.
Many online have requested for stars to give speeches, and comedy legend Keenen Ivory Wayans decided to participate. In true Wayans fashion though, he recruited his son to help record a fake commencement speech.

"Hello, everybody. This is Keenen Ivory Wayans. I just want to say congratulations to the class of 2020. I know this sucks. You worked your a*s off and now you don't even get to walk, but that's what makes you the greatest generation of this new millennium," he said.
"In the face of a global pandemic, you stayed focused, continued to work hard, and achieved your goals. That's the kind of leaders we're going to need in the future. I wish you guys all the best," he said before baring it all in front of the camera.
The hilarious spoof racked up more than 2 million views on Twitter and thousands more on Instagram.
Star comedians like Robert Townsend, Wanda Sykes and Arsenio Hall all commented on Wayans' Instagram video as well.
