Man loses poker bet, has to make name 99 characters

See also

A man lost a poker bet and was forced to hold up his end of the bargain: To change his name. According to a video report by Buzz60, the New Zealand man didn't just change his name to "Fred" or "Bob." He was forced to take on a much more complicated name -- that happened to be 99 characters long.

"Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova" is the man's new name (if you can even call it that). A photo of the "official" name change document was posted online by the man's friend and it looks pretty legit. This guy must have thought he was really good at poker. Oops.

Apparently the man made the change several years ago, thinking that his request was denied. When he went to renew his passport recently, however, he learned that his name was way longer (and way different) than what he had previously thought. It's unknown if the man changed his name back to something more manageable since.
