TOMMY: I’ve been picked on, wedgied, ridiculed, upper-decked, and cyberbullied by elected officials. I am also currently failing out of this university. And though I too cannot sing a drop, there is nowhere I’d rather be than in the welcome embrace of Barden a cappella. But if you think this is like some high school club where you sing and dance your way through big social issues you’ve come to the wrong place. It’s nothing like that. That’s high school. This s— is real life.
(He claps twice) Alright people. Don’t just bring it! Sing it!
