NBC did a random person on the street interview for the Today Show and didn’t realize it was Evander Holyfield.

Yesterday at the Olympics, NBC did a random person on the street interview to be showed on the Todays Show. During that, they interviewed Former boxing Champion Evander Holyfield. The weird thing is they did not notice that this, “random person” was a star.
Holyfield tweeted about it also as shown in the picture on the right. I am sure that NBC now feels weird.
I guess that the person doing the interview did not know sports well. I understand not knowing who a a no-name athlete is, but this was a superstar athlete.
Hopefully today on the Todays Show they correct their mistake.
