Some others on the call tried to keep a straight face as Chief Judge Jeffrey Middleton quizzed the man at St. Joseph County District Court over the graphic username.
Of course, everything is ten times funnier when you’re not supposed to laugh...
The clip begins with the judge asking the man to introduce himself.

“Then we will bring this fool in,” the judge says, before the man pops up on screen. He then adds: “Good morning sir, what’s your name?”
“Nathaniel Saxton, sir,” the man responds.
“Your name is not Buttf***er 3000?” Middleton questions, then says: “Logging into my court with that as your screen name, what kind of idiot logs into court like that? What’s your name again?”
“Nathaniel Saxton, sir, but I don’t believe that I typed anything like that in,” the man responds sheepishly.
“Well that’s what it says,” Middleton replies.
“Well I apologize, that should not be there,” Saxton says.
“Yeah you should,” Middleton responds. He then puts him back in the Zoom waiting room, adding: “You can sit in limbo for a while and think about what you call yourself online.”
The second-hand embarrassment is real.
The video has received more than 266,000 views on YouTube since Wednesday and people flooded the comments with their thoughts on the funny viral clip.
One person wrote: “I’m surprised that not more of them were visibly holding their laughter.”
“And to think there were 2999 previous users that also claimed that name before Nathaniel S. was able to use it,” another person commented.
Someone else replied: “Sounds like he’s using a shared zoom account if he’s legit not put that in himself.”
“Logging into my court lmao. It’s a whole new world now,” a fourth person responded.
Moral of the story, always check your Zoom username before any meeting – especially if it’s a court hearing.
