Amazon CEO might be the richest man in the world, but it seems that not everyone is aware of that. The Amazon boss recently went on a surprise visit to Dunbar High School in Washington, DC to interact with the students. But, one young man seemed completely unaware about who Bezos is. In a video which has now gone viral, the Amazon founder and president is seen visiting a company-funded computer science class at the school. In this video, a student can be seen asking "Who's Jeff Bezos?" twice to another student sitting behind him.
The question came as Bezos began talking to students about Amazon's "Future Engineer programme" that funds many courses around the US. The other kid revealed to his friend that Bezos owns one of the largest companies in the world. The young man's retort was as shocking as his initial question - he said, "Big deal, so what?"
The video was taken and posted by Caroline Tucker. "This morning @amazon is at Dunbar High School in DC to announce a milestone in its Future Engineer Program. They had a surprise guest... Jeff Bezos,' she tweeted. Moments after the video was posted, it went viral drawing several reactions.

To this Tucker responded by saying that this boy was the only one Bezos ended up talking to. "The young man in the class ended up being the only one who spoke to Jeff Bezos about how much he has learned about coding. Later on, he told me he wanted to "seize" the opportunity to talk to the CEO," Tucker added. She posted another video where the two can be seen interacting.
Another surprise is that, according to the New York Post, the teacher of the class said "only about three" of her 15 students knew who Bezos was when he walked into the classroom. Bezos is currently the richest man in the world with an estimated net worth of $110 billion despite a huge divorce settlement with ex-wife MacKenzie Bezos worth $35.6 billion in Amazon stock.
