Last night’s Better Call Saul featured a sub-plot of Mike going back to work for a client who thought he needed protection to trade some illegal prescription drugs with Nacho. The client was played Mark Proksch, also known as “Nate from the warehouse” on the last few seasons of The Office. Before breaking through in that role, Proksch was famous on the internet for a different reason.

In 2010, Proksch assumed the identity of Kenny “K-Strass” Strasser, a self professed “Yo-Yo Master” who tricked a bunch of mid-western local news morning shows into having him live, on-air. Of course, the joke was that the whole thing was an act, and every appearance was an unmitigated disaster. Yet, he managed to pull it off about a half dozen times before he finally got caught and the clips went viral. Speaking of viral clips, here’s a few to get you started:
