As the world of social media continues to debate the auditory illusion that is two words - Yanny and Laurel, Irish-American actor Michael Keaton took to the stage at Kent State University this week for the University’s graduation ceremony to voice two other words which have also captured the world’s attention.

Keaton, a Best Actor nominee, has traveled to Ireland several times before, and says his maternal grandfather “probably” came from Co. Mayo.

“I’ve got two words that I want you all to remember,” Keaton said in a clip from the speech which has now gone viral. “They’re very important, and if I leave you with anything, I’m going to leave you with these two words. I’m Batman.”
