An inspired bit of prankery here. Somewhat surprisingly, Reeves didn't seem to mind becoming the 'butt' of the joke.

Bart Simpson would be proud.
Someone pranked Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves so smoothly that it has the rest of the nation — well, cracking up.
The Republican governor was recognizing many of the state’s thousands of 2020 seniors who are missing out on a normal graduation due to the coronavirus.
As Reeves powers through the list of names, he coolly utters “Harry Azcrac.” His embarrassment is seen briefly immediately after the blunder.
For his part, Reeves carried the joke a bit further Tuesday, issuing props to the prankster.
“Harry’s submitter has a bright future as a Simpson’s writer!” Reeves wrote.
Their Trump-lovin' Governor had a good chuckle.
As did some in the media.
