Tony Hawk is, inarguably, one of the biggest names in pro sports.
The iconic skater—the only skate boarding legend lots of people outside the sport know by name—has moved beyond just his sport and into video games, TV, voice work, etc... As much as the world knows Tony Hawk's name, most people have no idea what he looks like unless he's got a skateboard in his hands.
Tony Hawk having people tell him he "kinda looks like Tony Hawk"—even when looking at his ID—is a thing that happens so often his fan-base has turned it into a recurring joke.
It might be everyone's favorite thing.
It happened again.

Tony Hawk kind of looking like Tony Hawk enough that he regularly gets told he looks like Tony Hawk—but not actually being recognized as Tony Hawk—is one of those things that highlights how surreal celebrity life really is.
But part of the reason fans love Tony Hawk so much is because he happily shares that sort of stuff with them.
His Twitter account is a window into the weird, and we can't get enough.
