Andy Bernard would be proud: Ed Helms delivered the commencement address to the Class of 2014 at his Office character's alma mater, Cornell University. Ever heard of it?

"Andy Bernard's zealous embrace of Cornell is well-documented, but I can’t tell you how meaningful and just plain cool it is to see Cornell embrace him right back," Helms said. "I directly embarrassed this school for eight years on national television, and no protests."

In addition to making jokes about his sitcom role, Helms included the standard commencement speech punch lines about student debt and joked that Cornell's mascot, a bear in a red sweater, was an instrument of communist propaganda.
