Meanwhile, a fourth joked: ‘Worst prank ever! Nice try Rob.’
Despite several non-believers, some viewers insisted that Rob is in fact Traffic Cone and the tweet he sent was very real.

“I just thought it would be so much fun to rock out, even though I’d rather hide behind a guitar than a sweaty mask. It was a great experience overall.
“Luckily my schedule cleared up. I’m a big fan of letting your higher power take over and I guess that meant I was able to get on the show.”
