Tony Hawk Mistaken By TSA Agent For Lance Armstrong–And It’s Not The First Time People Haven’t Recognized Him

Tony Hawk is a world renowned skateboarder. He has won competitions from Florida to Washington to Germany. He’s considered by many to be the most influential skateboarder around, and has even leant his namesake to a video game series entitled Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. But, despite all this acclaim, apparently Hawk’s isn’t the most recognizable face.

As Hawk himself has repeatedly documented on Twitter:

As well as these awkward encounters…

Hawk is probably the only person in entertainment worth an estimated 120 million who isn’t immediately recognizable.

But it does appear that this is a trend in his life…

People were amused…

Memes were born…

But most just couldn’t understand how people didn’t recognize him…

Maybe the TSA will recognize him now that this story has gone viral.
