The favorite beer brand of college kids nationwide wants to help those students celebrate commencement this year despite social distancing. Natural Light has announced it will host an online "Worldwide Commencement" on May 14, featuring guest speakers like Jane Lynch, Shark Tank star Mark Cuban and sports commentator Stephen A. Smith. "Graduation ceremony canceled? Sucks, but we got your back," the brand tweeted Thursday. "We’re throwing a worldwide commencement ceremony for the class of 2020. Tune in to Facebook Live on May 14 at 7 p.m. ET. Plus, you get to drink beer during it." Smith added in a statement, “Graduation is the exclamation point on years of hard work and commitment, designed to celebrate and propel you forward onto your next success. I hope my words of advice at the Natty Light Worldwide Commencement on May 14 help to embolden and motivate the class of 2020.”
