Call Of Duty Guy Rib Hillis Cannot Convince Walmart Employee It's Him On Modern Warfare Poster

This is the moment a young Walmart employee wouldn't believe that the guy on the Call of Duty poster was stood in front of him:

Soap star Rib Hillis was trying with all his might to convince the lad it was him posed up as a Marine on the advertisement of Modern Warfare.

Rib, 50, can be heard telling the Walmart employee: "This is me," to which the sceptical guy replies saying: "The hairs and everything line up, like the grey hairs... even down here [points at beard] that lines up perfectly."


Despite pointing all of the above out, the guy called Tristyn still wasn't believing him and adds: "And you're just popping up over here? Dude that can't be you. You live in Montana. You think you're gonna be doing a Call of Duty Warfare poster?"

Hillis responds: "I live in Los Angeles, that's me. I don't know what more to tell you."

Still not having any of it, Hillis explained: "It's me, that's why I'm buying the poster."


Finally giving in, Tristyn said: "Well, I've played that game so... nice to meet you sir."

Providing an explanation as to why he was in Montana, TooFab reported that the actor is there shooting a film called Hunted.

Posting on his Instagram account, Rib said: "Some days my life is just surreal... This was one of them. First, that I am on a poster at Wallmart. Second, that they are all sold out. Third, that Tristyn didn't believe it was me."


Commenting on his post, one person wrote: "OMFG THATS YOU!?! so sick rib!!!"

Another added: "My husband worked on that game! When I saw you I was like! Hey that's my friend from high school! He didn't believe me either."

A third said: "I saw this in my Walmart and told my friend that's my second cousin. Not sure she believed me either."

Responding to one of the comments, Rib said: "Kinda made my life... Checked that box. Haha," before adding: "He was so great. Couldn't have written his reaction."


According to TooFab, the posters featuring Rib's mug had completely sold out, but the good news is that Hillis was allowed to take the remaining copy from the shop floor.
