It is so easy to dissociate the various incarnations of Tony Hawk that it’s become a recurring bit. He runs into someone at a restaurant or in an airport who knows what “Tony Hawk” is in theory but has trouble accepting that it’s something that the person in front of them, the actual Tony Hawk, could be. This apparently happens all the time.
