Job Seeker Accidentally Ends Up On-Air When He’s Mistaken For Another Person

In 2006, unemployed computer technician Guy Goma arrived at the BBC for a job interview as a data support technician. That same day, a journalist and Internet expert named Guy Kewney was scheduled to participate in an on-air interview to offer insight into the Apple Records v. Apple Computer trademark infringement court case. Due to a front office mixup and their shared first name, Goma was accidentally brought in to sit for the interview. As the video below shows, he held up very well, despite having realized that he was the victim of mistaken identity. Although Goma didn’t end up getting the job, he did enjoy a bit of notoriety.
