This guy is exploding all over the internet today for tricking Midwest news shows into thinking he's a yo-yo wizard, when in fact he's just a deadpan wizard.

A strange, strange man has been showing up on morning shows throughout the Midwest, claiming to be a yo-yo trick champion. He is not. He is actually terrible at yo-yo. Yet he keeps getting on the air.

Little is known about "K-Strass," who goes by Kenny Strasser, or sometimes Karl Strassburg. He claims to be from Wisconsin (except when he doesn't). He claims to be from a broken home, with his own addiction issues (except when he isn't).

All we know is that K-Strass has shown up on television six times in the past month, showing off his yo-yo "skills" and generally embarrassing the hosts.

This video has already been pulled from Youtube for some reason or another. See a few more, including one where he talks about getting hit with a switch when he was a kid, here.
