If you’re a 90’s kid, you probably played Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games at some point. Heck, maybe you even saw the pro skater make skateboarding history by landing The 900 at the 1999 X-Games. The Birdman, however, knows how to entertain us without a board, as well. Hawk is constantly sharing his funny tweets about the hilarious conversations he has with people who misrecognize him in person, and they’re so hilarious, they’re the most unexpected treats on Twitter ever.

Without a doubt, he’s the most famous skateboarder in history. But I still can imagine walking past the legend. After all, Tony has already hit the big 50 and looks like a pretty ordinary man if he’s not wearing a helmet and knee pads. Scroll down to read the funny exchanges he documented with unsuspecting folks, and be sure to check out our earlier list of these Embarassing moments when folks didn’t recognize they were talking to famous people!
