15 Celebrities Induction Speeches That Got Unexpectedly Real
They earned their spot in their respective Halls of Fame, which means they earned their time to say whatever they want. Luckily for us, they really went for it. Most speeches are classic thank-yous to parents, friends, managers, and team/band mates, but once in a while musicians and athletes throw some creativity in the mix, and from the looks of it, they didn’t have to run the content of these speeches by anyone.
We expected a wild one from Weird Al (who is on the list), but hilariously saucy moments from football, basketball, and hockey players were a welcome surprise. Especially hockey players… Those guys have been known for their stuffy, robotic interviews, so it’s nice when they hint at the personality within. Whether they planned some wild jokes and jabs or it was off-the-cuff, these 15 honorees had some of the oddest, funniest, and most badass induction speech quotes of all time.
