Andrew W.K., the king of partying, recently came through Chicago to deliver the keynote speech at Chicago’s Pizza Summit. Given W.K.’s endless positivity, and his status as a motivational speaker, The A.V. Club thought it would be a good chance to have him merge those pursuits and give us a motivational speech about pizza. The result is a powerful, inspiring piece about the beauty of not only pizza, but humanity. It’s easy to see why W.K.’s recently launched political party, The Party Party, is so refreshing. He’s a straight shooter who cares more about what bonds us instead of what divides us. And in this case, it’s how there’s a perfectly crafted slice of pizza inside us all.
