|The Graduate Actor|
The “graduate” actor is often portrayed as a hip cool guy who just wasn’t sure what he wanted to do after high school (as opposed to a hip cool guy who wasn’t sure WHO he wanted to get HIGH with after school). The schools they promote often are skilled labor schools like for welding or masonry. This cool guy is going on about college, broad casted from his driver’s seat in his beat up Chevy Nova in a dark ally way at night time. If you squint your eyes, you can see 4 guys mugging a baby in the background.
The actor never talks about how awesome his experience was at school. He doesn’t mention what he’s doing now with his degree, or even mention what he studied. All (he) they say is “PICK UP THE GOD DAMN PHONE AND CALL YOU LAZY ASSHOLE!! YOU AIN'T DOING SHIT WITH YOUR LIFE CEP COLLECTIN G.R. OR SSI, SO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON ME INSTEAD...SO WHAT CHA WAITN FOR? PICK UP THE PHONE!!!”. During the closing scene, the actor pulls out a grip of one dollar bills and flashes them on the screen.
