Man answers quiz question wrong despite having answer on his T-shirt


High street clothes shops have long been full of T-shirts making references to pop culture.

They are great for fans of the films, TV shows or bands featured but there is always going to be that one disappointing person who buys a Ramones shirt who has probably never heard of 'Blitzkrieg Bop' or 'Sheena is a Punk Rocker.'

Spare a thought then for this young man named Alberto, who decided to wear a Captain America T-shirt when in 2017 he appeared on Spanish game show "Ahora Caigo", roughly translated as "Now I Fall".

Alberto probably never in a million years thought a question about Marvel's Avengers would come up on the show, never mind one specifically about Captain America.

Sadly not.

Looking utterly clueless, Alberto replied with...

Alberto, Captain Rogers is not impressed.
