He is Mc Lovin. Legally.

A British man changed his name to Mc Lovin, the alias used by Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s Fogell in Superbad, after feeling depressed over the sudden death of his best friend. The former-Gary Fisher told the Marlborough Express that he made the decision because “it makes people happy, even if they are taking the piss. They always have to see my license before they believe me.”

(In case you’re wondering, it’s first name: Mc. Last name: Lovin.)

Mc Lovin and his buddy Tim Crowe were inseparable, until Crowe “started to disappear, hang out with different people,” he said. “Then one day they found him dead, with no shoes, no wallet, no phone. The police said it was not suspicious, saying he must have fallen and hit his head, but it just didn’t make sense to me.” It took Mc Lovin two years to get over Crowe’s death, but his new partner eventually helped him move on. She’s even come to terms with dating a Mc Lovin — the Mc Lovin — because it could have been worse.

She had to “put her foot down a few times” while Lovin was coming up with ideas, she said. One such name was Skeletor Overlord Evil, which Lovin suggested because he liked the idea of being known as Mr. Evil, he said. (Via)

Mc Lovin, who can’t walk outside with getting a high-five from a frat bro, added that “some people call me McMuffin, because I’ve put on a bit of weight,” but no one’s ever “had a negative response.” Not even Seal.
