Aside from that impromptu vocal solo he also joked about how seriously he intends to take his new title of 'doctor'.

He said "my wide and kids must now address me as Dr Ferrell" and joked "I've been told i can now perform minimally invasive surgery at any time and any place even if people don’t want it" before asking for student volunteers for his first ever 'surgery'.

"Trust your gut" he said "Keep throwing darts at the dartboard. Don't listen to the critics and you will figure it out".

Sounds like wise advice to us! Since he made the speech, it has now racked up millions of views on YouTube.
