If you don’t want to go to college but you still would like to attend a graduation ceremony we have good news for you. According to a comedian and a college drop-out Jaron Myers, it’s not that hard to do it.
Jaron got the idea of sneaking into a graduation ceremony from his friends. “My friends just say wouldn’t it be really funny if someone does this,” he said to KTTS Morning Show. So, one Friday morning he thought to himself “I think I can pull that off”. The first thing he did was getting a cap and a gown at the bookstore for $38. After seeing his friends posting photos of their name cards, he realized he needs one too, in order to get his name called during a ceremony. So, he photoshopped one, printed it out and just went to the graduation. Jaron believed that he’s not even going to make it to the arena “Every step of the way I thought I am getting caught” he said in an interview. However, the odds were in his favor. “Before I knew it, I was on the floor and at that point, I couldn’t back out. So I just went through it”.
After seeing everyone holding card stocks with their names, Jaron’s stress level went up. “Everyone’s got it and I’m just with a flimsy piece of paper”. However, no one seemed to be bothered by his printer paper at all. “So I walked out there, grabbed the diploma, shooked the hand, and took the picture”.
The comedian was surprised that he made it “I am still in shock that we pulled it off”. However, after a few people got offended by this prank, Jaron rushed to explain himself “I want to make it clear that I have zero disrespect towards anybody who actually did the work and got a degree. I hope this doesn’t take away at all from the work they’ve done.”
