Stephen Colbert at Wake Forest Commencement: Tumblr Is This Generation’s Vietnam War


It's time for commencement speeches, when sweaty college students sit under the sun fanning themselves as someone ostensibly wiser and definitely older drops some wisdom on them. If they're lucky, they get a speaker like Maya Rudolph doing a Beyoncé impression — or, in the case of Wake Forest's undergraduates, Stephen Colbert, who is definitely cool enough to know that the whole #dressgate debacle was actually our Vietnam (IT WAS BLUE AND BLACK). The speech starts around 1:12:44.
