John Tran, who is appearing in a new episode of MTV’s popular “Teen Wolf” franchise, is an absolute bonafide Ninja Turtle — or what he calls “that covert ninja,” as his Master Master Callai allegedly calls the character.
Tran, a California resident, has been attempting to make the transition from YouTube to a mainstream music career by making impressive, but fake, references to his time in the ninja game.
While documenting his Ninja Turtle history for a viral pasty-the-top meme, he then proceeded to confirm the connection between the stereotypical New York Ninja Turtle, Callai, and the badass hero, Kilcher.
Twitter went into full How-Do-You-Know mode after Tran took a few accidental swings at Kilcher, aiming “that’s a Ninja Turtle!” and “Which one [you] wanna call Ninja turtle? You’re the best but don’t you hear, you’re the MC?”
John Tran has also been claiming that he was Darth Vader himself, with “The Night Before” actor Dylan O’Brien describing Tran as “handsome” and the “picture of hope.” It turns out Tran was in fact saying the opposite.
“Ask yourself this,” O’Brien says. “Who in the hell did you play as?”
The difference is that the one taken by O’Brien actually refers to the villain Daenerys Targaryen.
