imagine being sam irl tho, and years latter finding this post and regretting ever letting scratch take a pic of you

Who is Sam in real life? Is his real name Sam?

I would assume it might be one of the sons of a scratch team member, or they asked a random child on the street to become a sprite and be stuck in the “Choose A Sprite” option forevermore.

He is probably a ST member, or a random MIT student who volunteered to become a sprite.

You have to be 18 to be ST, he does not look 18+ making that an unlikely possibility (I'm calling it unlikely just in case he is 18+ and just looks really young, it's a very blurry picture). MIT is a very prestigious college, meaning he would most like be 18+ if he was there making that possibility unlikely too.

I am sure his real name is not “sam”.
Why though? It seems really random to come up with the name “Sam” for a sprite, especially considering they do allow you to share your first name if it's a common like Robert, Zachary, or Sam.

Probably back in the old ancient days of the early 2000s, a bunch of kids (most likely from the Computer Clubhouse as that was LLK's main project at the time) were testing a prototype for Scratch and one of them wanted to be immortalised into the program as a built in sprite.

That seems reasonable.

I'm going to use that AI depixelizer to try and get a higher-quality version of Sam.

If I'm being honest, I did not expect HD Sam to be Hispanic Todd Howard.

I reverse image searched Sam and this is what I found:

Google thinks he's a child Halloween costume model, lol.
