Brad Pitt once again surprised everyone with a video message for the graduating students of Missouri State University. Angelina Jolie’s former husband made a special tribute to the new graduates and inspired everyone amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
President Clif Smart and the college’s mascot, Boomer the Bear, featured Brad Pitt in a video message for the graduating class. Smart first shared a word before he revealed the 56-year-old actor’s, deemed as the king of surprise cameos, clip.
The inspiring message for students
“Our students always say that Missouri State University and Springfield feel like home,” Smart said, via E! News. “It’s just a place where people always remember where they’ve come from.”
From here, he surprisingly shared Jennifer Aniston’s ex-husband’s video message.
Brad Pitt greeted everyone first before saying he is in quarantine. “A shout out to the graduating class of Missouri State University!” he exclaimed. “It must be very strange doing this in these trying times, but no, we’re rooting for you.”
Alia Shawkat’s alleged boyfriend then revealed people’s money is on these new graduates, betting to make the world a better place. He also wished them the best in their future endeavors and gave them a big congratulation. “You did it; you made it! Enjoy, congrats again, and think big!” he ended his message.
Just like most of the people in quarantine today, Brad Pitt’s tresses have grown out. His hair is even flipping up at the ends.
As the king of surprise cameos, it looks like he is keeping himself busy by appearing in different videos. He made an appearance as a pseudo weatherman on John Krasinski’s web show, Some Good News. Also, he impersonated Dr. Anthony Fauci on Saturday Night Live that turned to be the talk of the town.
