Jordan Peele has plenty of reasons to celebrate these days. His directorial debut, Get Out, was a smash hit and won best original screen play at the Oscars. He’s one of the hottest names in Hollywood, and it might seem like there’s nothing he can’t do.

One thing he definitely didn’t do, though, is hit a game-winning buzzer-beater to send Michigan to the Sweet 16. That was Jordan Poole, the Wolverines’ freshman guard. In case you need a refresher:

If you’re a Michigan fan, it was probably natural to want to give Poole a shout-out after the game. After all, Michigan Twitter was certainly a wild place late Saturday night/Sunday morning.

And as you’ve probably noticed, their names are quite similar. Here’s what it looks like when I type @JordanP in my Twitter feed:

I’m evidently not the only person to notice this.

It looks like most people doing this were in on the joke. I searched Peele’s mentions and couldn’t find people @ing him thinking he was the Michigan guard. Peele was cool with the joke, too.
