Guy Goma BBC Interview
I know this isn't art, but it's funny..
A few days ago a guy
went into the BBC for a job interview and found himself being interviewed live on a worldwide broadcast. The funny thing is it was the wrong "Guy".
The BBC presenter thought she was interviewing "Guy Kewney" of newswireless.net, but she was really talking to "Guy Goma" who was looking to be interviewed for a job with the BBC.
Guy Goma had only been learning English for the past 4 years and did the best he could in the challenging situation. He was interviewed as "Guy Kewney" and happily answered whatever difficult questions were thrown at him by the presenter, Karen Bowerman.
Here's what he said about the incident..
"It all happened so fast. I had just signed my name when someone said 'follow me'.
He was walking so fast I had to jog to keep up. He led me into a room and this lady tried to put some make-up on me. I thought it was all part of the job interview.
When realizeded I was already on air, what could I do? I just tried to answer the questions and stay calm."
See the video of it here.
There's more about it here.. and the BBC brought him back on air a few days later here.
