John Mayer disguises himself as a member of the 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' house band
Jimmy Kimmel Live

John Mayer is no stranger to pranks, and last night, he managed to trick "Jimmy Kimmel Live's" audience into thinking he was someone else. Kimmel introduced the audience to Hank the Hawk Knutley, a guest of his house band, The Cletones, who was there to promote his new album Knutley In Your Face. The crowd didn't know that Hank the Hawk Knutley was actually Mayer in disguise. His disguise consisted of biker-style attire, a beard, a protruding beer belly and a service dog named Henry.

Kimmel would speak to him on several occasions throughout the show, asking how John Mayer came up with his alias, info on his "new album" and more before being outed right as Hank the Hawk Knutley was about to play his tunes.

When asked why he did it while on Kimmel's, Mayer said he decided to pull the prank because "Ed Sheeran is just killing it now, and I thought that maybe if I played a different person I could get another chance to make it." Jimmy Kimmel assured Mayer that he's great and for him to be himself. Mayer followed the exchange by performing "Still Feel Like Your Man" off of his latest release The Search for Everything.

For those of you interested in seeing John Mayer perform live, he will be hitting the road on his "Search for Everything World Tour." Some of his tour stops include Sprint Center, T-Mobile Arena and many more. For all updates and tour information on John Mayer, keep up with him via his AXS.com page here.
