He was in one of the “Police Academy” films, an episode of “The Simpsons”, a “Weird Al” Yankovic music video, and commercials

Hawk took to Twitter Wednesday night to share his last encounter with someone who somehow knows who he is This was with a woman who did the paperwork for him and two of his children at a COVID-19 testing site :

At a Covid test site (with masks), & hands me paperwork to two of my children: Woman looking over papers: “Okay Anthony, Keegan and Kadence Falke? Are you related to Tony Hawk?” I: yes: ” Are you pulling on my leg? “Me: no, we are all directly related to him

Woman looks over papers: Okay Anthony, Keegan and Kadence Falke? Are you related to Tony Hawk? “he tweeted

Year in review: timeline of the greatest sports moments in 2020

A schedule that looks back on the triumph, tragedy and drive for change in the sports world in 2020

To be fair, Hawk was wearing a mask at the time (presumably one of the face masks we all wore to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, not the elephant costume he was a candidate for “The Masked Singer”)

And she was probably way too busy to realize that “Tony” is usually short for “Anthony” ”

But something like this seems to happen to Hawk all the time, and he loves sharing the stories on Twitter

To clarify: My legal name is Anthony TSA agent checks my ID, looks at me, looks at the ID, looks at me questioningly and says loudly “Tony Hawk is my favorite skater” Me: I’ll tell him

Man in the supermarket: “You are ever mistaken for Tony Hawk or are you Tony Hawk? Me: both!

At Disneyland with kids in line for churros, girls wait in front of me: “You look like Tony Hawks” me: really? You: “Yes” me: Is that good? You, at a loss: “I think so”

The agent approaches the ticket office, looks up and exclaims, “I know you, you are a famous person or a skateboarder athlete! And your name is “(looks at my ticket)” Anthony Hawkins! “Me: close enough you: my son would love a picture with youme: is he here? You: no

Follow up: I asked his name and he said Irving I told him my name was Tony, to which he sarcastically replied “like Tony Hawk haha” and then he left

We are waiting in front of the @WonderfrontFest VIP gate for my kids to arrive so I can give them their wristbands Guy on Bike: “Is this the stage where @OFFICIALSTIG is playing and Tony Hawk is skating?” I ( with knee pads) yepHim: “Where is the main entrance?” Me: around the corner

While driving through, waiting for my order, looking at the phone Man at the window: “You look kind of like Tony Hawk” I (turn to him, assuming he’s involved in the joke): “haha, cool “He (looks disappointed):” Well, from the side you do, Here’s your food ”

At @Tillys with my daughter waiting for her in the locker room, mask on Guy folds clothes nearby: “Did someone tell you you look like Tony Hawk?” I (look over, expect sarcasm, notice but that he is serious): You have no idea about him: That’s cool, he’s coolme: thank you! Him: huh?

Of course, Hawk is pretty well known too, and also tweets about some of these encounters, which are usually not that amusing, but this one is pretty amazing:

I have just finished surfing and I stand on the sand and dry off VERY little child nearby: “Mom, effant!” I turn around and see him and his mother looking at me. His mother: “He can take a picture with you He loves the masked singer “
