Coach's Speech of the Day: Alamo Drafthouse Has a New Friday Night Lights PSA

Alamo Drafthouse figures if disruptive movie theater audiences will listen to anyone, they'll listen to Coach Taylor.

Pandering towards that part of us all that wants to make the Friday Night Lights father figure proud, the Austin-based movie theater chain hired Kyle Chandler to reprise the role.

What appears to be the start of another moving and effective speech before another big game gets interrupted by the thoughtless youth with their bleeping and buzzing cellular doodads. Coach loses it and we all feel as shameful as Matt Saracen must have felt when he got drunk with Riggins in the strip club in season two and Coach had to drive him an his injured grandmother home from the hospital. Remember?

The English language should really have one of those specific words to describe what it feels like to disappoint Coach Taylor.

Anyway, the PSA drives the point home in spectacular style with Coach changing the Dillon Panthers' credo into something more on-message for movie theater politeness.

"Clear eyes, full hearts and turn your god damn cell phones off."

When Jimmy Fallon announced that the pop star had won the Video of the Year award for her hit song, "Wrecking Ball," Cyrus passed up the chance to thank her producers and managers for helping her achieve her goals. Instead, she sent up a former homeless teen to deliver a short speech intended to raise awareness about the issue of homeless youth.

'I have survived in shelters all over this city,' Jesse, Cyrus' proxy, said, describing his experience as one of the 1.6 million homeless young people in the United States. 'I've cleaned your hotel rooms, I've been an extra in your movies. I've been an extra in your life. Though may have been invisible to you on the streets I have a lot of the same dreams that brought many of you here tonight.'
