Former Canucks coach John Tortorella was named the head coach of the 2016 U.S. World Cup team on Monday. On Tuesday, USA Hockey decided to hold a conference call with Tortorella to take questions from reporters. It didn't go very well.

Somehow, three different prank callers managed to work their way onto the call. Furthermore, all three of them got to ask questions one right after another at the start of the call, and it wasn't pretty. None of the callers were particularly funny—one guy hit Tortorella with a lame "Yo Mama" joke, while another asked him what his favorite dolphin movie is—but hey, they tried!

Listen to the painfully awkward call here:

Who was in charge of screening these callers?!
