Per a tipster:
As a bonus to this story, you could add that, one hour prior to this moment, she threw a drink into the face of an alumnus – 20 years her senior – who approached her and politely asked her to quiet down out of respect for the people presenting on stage. Also – the audience was full of alumni spanning several decades.
A little alcohol is a great way to thwart those public speaking nerves. The key to regulating your alcohol intake before delivering a speech is to make sure you drink the perfect amount. It’s important to elevate your BAC to the point that you feel comfortable and confident, but not so much that it begins to affect your motor skills, or of course, your basic behavioral sense of right and wrong. This girl waved bye-bye to that BAC sweet spot on her way to a full-blown on-stage meltdown. And we’re thankful for that.
Very little is known at this point about who this girl is, why she was given a stage and a microphone, or what got her so amped up. However, from the University of Minnesota emblem on the podium, we can assume that’s where this episode took place. The following is the description left by our tipster, whom I have reached out to for a backstory, but have not heard back from yet.
Former Sigma Chi Sweetheart represents [name of sorority redacted] at chapter’s 125th anniversary. Stay classy sister.
And the video:
Off script, out of control, and drunk as shit — that’s how all speeches should go. The slow-mo instant replay set to “Rich Girl” was a nice touch, too. That’s how you nail a speech, guys.
