Text and Video of Address

"This being the Generation Award, I'm going to cut to the chase and I'm going to speak to you, the next generation, okay? I accept the responsibility as your elder, so listen up. This is what I call "Nine rules from Chris Pratt, Generation Award winner":

"Number 3: Don't be a turd. If you're strong, be a protector. And if you're smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, and do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that."
