C-SPAN might want to stop answering viewer calls from a man who goes by "Jack Strickland."
On Tuesday, during an "Open Phones" segment with host Pedro Echevarria about congressional influence on negotiations with Iran, the aforementioned Jack Strickland called in to offer his point of view. Strickland began the commentary with a little background information on his life — he currently lives in Bel Air, California, but is originally from West Philadelphia.
You probably know where the rest of this went.
In a conversational tone, the man who called himself Jack Strickland explained that he was actually chatting with a friend about Congress and Iran negotiations when "a couple of guys who were up to no good essentially started causing trouble in my neighborhood" and casually recited the theme song from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air."
The so-called Strickland was cut off before he could finish the recitation. The video was posted to YouTube by a user called Jack Strickland whose channel has six other C-SPAN prank call videos. Maybe now C-SPAN will get wise to Mr. Strickland's antics.
