Myra was confident.
Jeopardy provides multiple layers of entertainment. The competition is enough to keep viewers engaged, but the absurdity of some of its contestants' answers take the show to a different level. One of the program's most recent shows contained a hilarious display of confusion or simple ignorance with a contestant named Myra mistaking Uncle Kraker for Kid Cudi.

An image of Uncle Kraker was presented to the participants with a list of clues pointing to his identity. The host asked them to identify the man he described as an "avuncular fellow" who had worked as Kid Rock's DJ and performed music within the genres of Country Pop and Rap/Rock. Myra hit her buzzer with the quickness. Somehow, the first person that came to her mind was Kid Cudi.
They were actually enough hints to lead someone away from considering Cudi at all. Perhaps she assumed the inclusion of "Kid" in his name was a pledge to the same crew as Kid Rock's.
A clip of the hilarious blunder made its way to Cudi who, of course, found the whole thing to be funny enough to share it on Twitter with a few laugh-crying emojis. Naturally, his following jumped into the ridiculousness with their own humorous takes on the situation.
