It’s 10 years since Guy Goma became a celebrity after he was mistaken for an internet expert and interviewed on BBC News TV.
The unemployed computer technician had been at the BBC for a job interview. But the graduate from the Congo gained worldwide attention after a mix-up saw him interviewed on air instead of Guy Kewney

  1. Lesson to us all on how to just cuff it. Who cares. Everyone is blagging their case these days. The bloke was brilliant.

  2. He done a great job, they should have hired him on the spot.

  3. He’s playing with the situation very well. Despite his surprised look at the beginning. Too bad he didn’t get the job but it was an innocent mistake.

  4. But… He was right. He deserves to turn down that shitty job a BBC.

  5. This has got to be the the worlds number one TV blooper ever. Makes me die every time. Priceless.

  6. People don't even know what job he (so sorry I assumed his gender) applied for and are all cunty about BBC not giving him a job

  7. Fair play to the guy.
    The face he pulls when the penny dropped is amazing …….love it.

  8. Gets me everytime he could have blagged it

  9. Its important to be general knowledge savvy you never know when the cameras will come for your input

  10. It was about the Apple Corps v Apple Computers settlement

  11. How did he not get the job!?!!?!?!?

  12. His face at 0:27 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  13. This just shows that you could literally get some one of the street and most would give a reasonable answer, i for one want more normal people opinions rather than 'experts'.

  14. That's why I didn't subscribe

  15. 0:47 the side eyes are killing me 👀 🤣🤣

  16. … and the real Guy Kewney got the job as data support cleanser. 😀

  17. OMG hilarious ahahah
    What a pity he wasn't given a job. He deserves a medal!

  18. hopefully i got the the right job. bbc dont deserve him.

  19. Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool

  20. Awww.. He deserved to get the job for handling the situation the best he could being stuck in situation like that

  21. Got nothing on the yes men, cost a corporation over 1bn $

  22. To mistakably impersonate someone else on live tv is not way to go especially when you're there for an interview. He should have come out clean the moment she called him by a wrong name

  23. He was making the same banal statements as the real expert probably would have made
    I like the way he angles the first question about his surprise. He is sufficiently ambiguous to not let the interviewer discover her blunder.

  24. Ooooooh Cringe moment for the BBC, but i like the way he held it down and just freestyled the way through. He DID make it known at the beginning that there may be a mix up, but the news anchor decided to continue so many props to him for sticking to, "The show MUST go on…" 😂👏👏👏

  25. I laughed for a good while when this happened lol

  26. People keep having a go at the BBC in these comments but I think he did a pretty good job.

  27. He wasn't wrong about people downloading music

  28. 0:24 If that expression doesn't kill. Nothing else will.
