A hilarious clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! clip has shown Americans struggling to identify Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff with one baffled man asking if he is a ‘Vince Vaughn impersonator.’
Most people, many of them young, couldn’t name the man in the photo with guesses ranging from Harvey Weinstein to a star of Seinfeld or a ‘basic’ soccer dad named George.
Others were equally stumped when shown a photo of Harris, with one woman guessing the vice president was a member of the Kardashian family.
A hilarious clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! clip has shown Americans struggling to identify Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff with one baffled man asking if he is a ‘Vince Vaughn impersonator’. Pictured Emhoff and Kamala Harris
People were randomly stopped in the street of Los Angeles this week and shown a photo of the 56-year-old husband of Kamala Harris on Wednesday’s episode of the show
Emhoff made history in January when he became the US’s first second gentleman, as the husband of the US’s first female, black and Indian American Vice President Kamala Harris.
But it seems the iconic moment wasn’t that memorable to many Americans with people placing him as a TV host, 90s star or even a wrestling personality before the spouse of the president’s second-in-command.
‘Who is this guy?’ one woman asked as she was handed the photo.
The crew replied: ‘That’s my question for you. Do you know who he is?’ to which she replies ‘no.’
When pressed if he looks like anyone in particular, she said he looks ‘like he might have been in a TV show… like Seinfeld or something.’
One woman said she thought he would be a ‘soccer dad’ most likely named ‘George.’
‘A soccer dad. Like his name is George,’ one woman said, adding he ‘looks basic.’
‘A bit like Big Bird a little bit but in a manly way,’ she continued.
When given a hint that his first name begins with ‘d’ the woman guessed his name could be ‘Dan, David or Dimitri.’

Other guesses ranged from Harvey Weinstein to a star of Seinfeld or a ‘basic’ soccer dad named George while others were equally stumped when shown a photo of Harris, with one guessing the vice president is a member of the Kardashian family
Another woman also dubbed him a ‘David’, ‘Daniel’ or ‘Derek’ while one asked if he was black American rapper Doug E. Fresh.
One far from favorable comparison from one man was convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.
‘The one that went to prison for all these rapes?’ one man asked.
A man’s voice off camera asks who he means.
‘I don’t know his name but he looks kind of like that,’ the man replied.
‘Are you talking about Harvey Weinstein?’ the crew member asked.
The man confirmed: ‘Harvey Weinstein yes.’
Other guesses included a ‘TV host’, ‘an actor’ and ‘a science teacher.’
Meanwhile, an ‘executive director’, ‘clean comedian’ and a ‘Vince Vaughn impersonator’ were all thrown into the ring.
Only one woman put on the spot managed to successfully identify Emhoff without any help
‘He looks like someone that would come out in WWE like a reunion of some sort,’ one man said.
Another suggested a star from ‘some Netflix show from the 90s that is coming back but is old now.’
Some people were equally stumped even when shown a picture of Harris with one young woman asking if she was a member of the Kardashian family.
‘A Kardashian?’ she asked. She then looked again and said: ‘No? She doesn’t look like a Kardashian.’
When asked which Kardashian she is, she replied: ‘I don’t know the Kardashians… she just looks fancy.’
Vice President Kamala Harris joined by her husband Doug Emhoff as she took her oath on inauguration day. Emhoff made history in January when he became the US’s first Second Gentleman, as the husband of the US’s first female, black and Indian American Vice President Kamala Harris
The camera crew then point out the Biden signs in the background but this still doesn’t rekindle any knowledge of the vice president.
A crew member then teased that the man is ‘Hunter Biden’ to which she replied: ‘Oh okay of course – I know what Joe Biden looks like.’
One young man Kamala’s first name and that her last name rhymes with farris, but remains stumped.
When told her name is Kamala Harris he then says she is a ‘movie star.’
