    Watch a governor read ‘Harry Azcrac’ during virtual graduation ceremony and slowly realize he was pranked

    Congratulations to the class of 2020 — and a special shout out to one “Harry Azcrac” who, for lack of better wording, managed to slip through the cracks.

    Like many students, high schoolers in Mississippi are celebrating their graduations from home instead of with the usual pomp and circumstance. To congratulate the class of 2020, Gov. Tate Reeves diligently read out every graduating senior’s name in a virtual commencement on Facebook Live. But among the hundreds of names to announce, the governor was pranked into reading one particularly memorable one: Harry Azcrac.

    The fumble occurs at about 1:07.

    Reeves appeared to realize the joke, taking a second to pause, but powered through without cracking up. To his credit, he did later acknowledge the slip in response to a viral tweet about the prank.

    “Harry’s submitter has a bright future as a Simpson’s writer!” Reeves tweeted, hinting that “Ben Dover” might make an appearance during Tuesday’s read-through of recent graduates.

    You can watch Tuesday’s virtual commencement here. Hopefully the governor’s office was able to proofread submissions this time.
