K-Strass (the Yo-Yo Guy)
A few years ago, he took a tour of local midwestern morning shows billing himself as K-Strass the Yo-Yo Master: teaching school kids about the environment through yo-yo tricks. It seems that local midwestern morning shows don't do any background checks when they book guests, and are so starved for new content, that K-Strass got booked. A lot.
His goal when getting on these shows: tell the saddest personal narrative and de-emphasize the actual yo-yo tricks as much as possible.
