This speaker looks at the human impulse to ignore the aphorism “Never put off for tomorrow what you can do today.” The intent of this speech is both Process (how-to) and Humor. As you watch, pay attention to his fairly constant hand gestures and facsics as nonverbal message agents. And, with that in mind, answer these three questions:
How does this topic still serve an audience member who is punctual in virtually every aspect of his or her life?
How does Ted Urban’s integration of visuals serve to “ramp up” the comic effect of his words?
As the speech draws to a close, how does he indicate his continued devotion to a life of procrastination despite his insistence that he recognizes the pitfalls of such an existence.
