WATCH: Man gets Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden confused in incredible epic quiz show fail

Wil Jones


Barack Obama is 44th President of the United States of America. You have probably heard of him.

Osama bin Laden was the founder of was a founder of al-Qaeda, the terrorist group responsible for the 9/11 attacks. He was killed by Navy SEALs in 2011. You have probably heard of him as well.

You probably wouldn’t get them mixed up.

On Sunday night, however, a contestant on US quiz show The $100,000 Pyramid, did that.  On national TV.

The show basically involves a contestant being paired with a celebrity, and who they offer clues to to guess a subject. Contestant Evan Kaufman was teamed with former SNL star Tim Meadows. And in this clip, he is given the clue ‘People Whose Last Name is Obama’.

Barack. Michelle. Malia. Bo the dog. His crazy brother Malik. All of those would be expectable answers.

Evan instead says “Bin Laden”.

There are not enough facepalm gif on the internet.
