The people in the pinball pic are American singers and visual artists Anthony Dominick Benedetto and Stefani Germanotta, who recorded a collaborative album that sold over a million copies, and played shows in a dozen countries off the back of it.

We've had this same discussion in this thread numerous times, so I'm just gonna copy+paste the same answers:

You know, if you don't recognize them by sight anyway, what's it gonna matter if you know their names or not?

Like you're going to be, "Oh, it's WAYNE COYNE. HILARIOUS."
