As far as I know, the only time Will Ferrell has delivered a speech in any kind of campus setting was in “Old School,” where he delivered the following monologue during a debate before blacking out: Recent research has shown that empirical evidence for globalization of corporate innovation is very limited and as a corollary the market for technologies is shrinking.
