One man shared that a reporter gave him a temporary name during a TV interview. And all because his first and last name sounded like a profession.
The Atlanta recruiter was delighted to be interviewed on New Year’s Eve. But soon realized he was being portrayed under a fake name.
“Emma and I made it on TV. But the cameraman didn’t believe I was Hunter Fisher so he made it for me,” Fisher (@HunterFisher21) wrote on Twitter.
Fisher’s name was given by the reporter to “Benjamin Holcomb,” and he probably imagined someone searching for a victim upon hearing Fisher’s name.
A number of people made hilarious comments about the name situation on Twitter after the group appeared on local news station WSBTV.
A man could completely associate with Fisher’s unbelieving name.
He wrote: “Some people don’t believe my name is Christian Stein, it’s alliteration (stian, stein), or the belief that you can’t call a Christian by a Jewish last name.”
Others thought the pseudo-name was pretty good.
“It’s a pretty good name for him that he just came up with!” they wrote.
the other was not on the boat.
“Disrespect!” they shouted.
Hunter’s double name was suggested by the Joker.
“Try Hunter Gatherer next time.”
Someone remembers similar names from the past: “Back in the late 80s or so. There was a man who legally changed his name to ‘Lake Trout Fishing’.”
“What about your ID?” another asked.
“Is that your middle name, Camper, or something?” the last man quipped.
