Deion Sanders, Colorado’s infamous head football coach, thought Mount Rushmore was in California during a Tuesday press conference.
It’s actually in Keystone, South Dakota, as Sanders seemingly mixed up the American monument of four presidents with the Hollywood sign, which is in Los Angeles.
‘What’s those little four heads that’s in California, what do they call those, the people’s faces engraved?’ Sanders quipped, before being corrected that Mount Rushmore isn’t on the West Coast.
