Chris Pratt may be one of the biggest movie stars in the world, but despite Hollywood’s attempt to cast him in every major action movie for the foreseeable future, there remain a few people who have never heard of him.

This segment of the population shrinks everyday. Whether it’s Parks and Recreation, blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, or help from a Facebook trending topic, more and more people end up discovering him—and for the most part, they love him. But Billy Eichner managed to find the only people in New York who still have a massive Pratt-shaped hole in their lives, and their interactions—with Pratt standing right there—are magical.

Pratt is a massively great sport about the whole thing, as Eichner repeatedly accosts passersby whose ignorance would wound a lesser actor’s ego. No amount of entertainment praise, résumé-spouting, or even promised rewards can force these people to recognize him. (But they might go on a Googling spree later.)

“Yeah, he’s a good-looking guy,” one man said of Pratt, who smiled. But when Eichner asked him who Pratt was, he answered, “Fuck if I know.”

Well, at least we can all agree that Chris Pratt is good-looking.
