Donald Trump, now the official GOP presidential nominee, may be a household name, but his running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence sure isn't. Saturday Night Live stars and Weekend Update hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost proved that Wednesday when they asked people on the street to point Pence out from a photo lineup and not a single person could.

For those of you unfamiliar with the GOP vice presidential candidate (i.e. everyone), Pence opposes same sex marriage and other LGBTQIA issues, raising minimum wage, and is on board with the U.S. border wall.

Che and Jost's one mission at the Republican National Convention? "Don’t die," which Che responds to by telling Jost that should be an easy feat for him.

After asking people for their best Trump impressions—featuring mentions of building a wall and the word "yuge"—Che and Jost asked for Hillary Clinton impressions and even one impression from that other Clinton, Bill.

But the main event was asking people to identify Pence from a lineup of six older looking white men on a poster board. Voters were stumped, with one man misidentifying Pence pointing to a picture of Steve Martin instead.

Some of the other white men in the changing lineup included: Richard Gere, Donald Sutherland as President Snow of The Hunger Games, and old Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

"They all look like the guy from Saw," one person said referring to Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) in the franchise.

If you knew what Mike Pence looked like before this, congratulations are in order.
