The Wrong GuySo what happens when you head to the BBC for a job interview and end up on the BBC news? Just watch the video and find out. This poor guy, Guy Goma, was at the BBC expecting to be interviewed for a job as a data support cleanser. But when he arrived he was somehow mistaken as an IT expert, Guy Kewney, who was scheduled to be interviewed about the Apple vs Apple court case. He was quickly wisked up to a TV interview which he mistakenly assumed was part of his interview. Karen Bowerman, the business presenter conducting the interview, quickly realized Guy didn’t seem to know much about the Apple vs. Apple case and cut the interview short asking just three quick questions. The whole thing was caught on tape and it is pretty funny. The video is available on You Tube and on the BBC web site. Watch the guys face as the segment starts, it’s pretty funny.

    This video still makes me laugh every time I watch it. I love the expression on the guy’s face when the video starts.

    Supposedly, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened with BBC News.

    Hm…on a number of other websites he was said to be the cab driver who was at the BBC waiting to pick up Guy Kewney. Here, Adam says he was here for a job interview. How come?

    The reports that he was a cab driver were incorrect. That was reported at first, but it was later discovered not to be correct.

    You can watch a later interview with him on the site where he says that he’s still waiting to hear about the job interview. As a BBC licence fee payer I demand that they give him the job!

    It’s absolutely hilarious. The fact that it happened is funny, but what’s even better is his face and the fact that all things considered he didn’t do a bad job at answering the questions.
