Chris Pratt may have emerged as “the brightest leading man” in a long time, but apparently, there are still tons of New Yorkers who have absolutely no idea who he is.
In a speak peek of this week’s episode of Billy on the Street, comedian Billy Eichner ran around Manhattan with Chris Pratt, offering a dollar to anyone who could identify the actor. Even though Pratt has starred in several of the biggest films of the past year, many people didn’t recognize him at all.
First, Eichner approaches a couple, and gives them a hint: “You know, Guardians of the Galaxy?” They say they don’t watch TV, to which Eichner responds, “It’s movies! You think he’s still slumming on NBC?”
One person thought Pratt was Chris Evans, while another thought he was “Liam.” (Hemsworth, perhaps?) Finally, a woman named Renee correctly identifies Pratt — but still isn’t nearly as excited as Eichner wants her to be.
