Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) was pranked over the weekend into congratulating “Harry Azcrac” for graduating high school.
Reeves marked the graduation of high school seniors by reading names during a Facebook Live event.
During it, seemingly out of nowhere, Reeves congratulated “Harry Azcrac” for graduating this year.
Reeves seems to have noticed what happened, pausing for a brief moment before continuing with the names of the graduates.
The prank was noticed by people online.
Even Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) chief-of-staff got in on the fun.
“Responsible prankster, please contact our office regarding fall internship opportunities,” Matt Klapper tweeted.
To his credit, Reeves had a sense of humor about the prank.
On Thursday, the Mississippi governor tweeted that the prankster had a “bright future as a Simpson’s writer” and then joked that he’d be honoring more graduates including “Ben—the pride of the Dover family.”
