Imagine tweeting about who won the Super Bowl without including the name of the winning team? 

Well, a tweet from Ottawa Public Health authored by someone named Bruce did just that, and the world took notice.

Now, the man behind the now-infamous flub has revealed his identity - and you might have heard of him.

Ottawa Public Health announced in a tweet Friday (March 12) that beloved Vancouver actor Ryan Reynolds is the "dear social media intern" who also goes by Bruce. 

In a video, the funnyman jokes that you may remember him from "that episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch" but that you probably don't know he also goes by the name Bruce. 

"And yes I occasionally tweet from Ottawa Public Health," he remarks. "Why? Everybody does."

"Bruce" adds that people should "back off" about the tweet (he's pretty busy, okay?) and advises people to follow public health advice for coronavirus (COVID-19) safety such as regular hand washing, mask-wearing, staying home, and getting tested.  

*Bruce, make sure to put the winning team's name here
