It’s commencement season and to celebrate, Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did a “1989 commencement speech” sketch on “The Tonight Show” Thursday (May 21).

Fallon and Johnson are Bobby Ristick and Logan Duffy, a.k.a. “Dufftron 3000,” and they’re the lowest-GPA students at Oneonta High School. But after their “eight years” in school, they have some words of wisdom to share.

  • “Focus on the future. Don’t get caught up in fads that won’t last, like computers.”
  • “I learned that moat rhymes with boat. Coincidence? I think not.”
  • “I learned that I can be anything I wanna be — I’m popular, I’m strong, I’m athletic. Mark my words, I’m going to be this generation’s O.J. Simpson.”
  • “Class of ’89, as we prepare to graduate, we must remember that the future is now. Well, actually, now’s the present, but in like five seconds the future will be here.”



In closing, they’d like to offer some words of wisdom from the inimitable philosopher Jon Bon Jovi. “We’ve got each other and that’s a lot. For love, we’ll give it a shot.”
