Is there paid vacation too?

Talk about a tough job interview ...
This poor guy was going for a job interview as a "data supportr cleanser," a back-office-never-see-another-person-geeky-computer-job at the Beeb. He was mistaken for the editor of a tech website, taken out of the reception area, had a mic pinned to his jacket and was interviewed ON THE AIR! Here's the best part: instead of alerting the presenter that she was about to make a contribution to the BBC's blooper reel, the Guy (Guy Goma, who is black, was mistaken for Guy Kewney, the real tech editor, who is white), actually answered the questions posed to him, even though, as Reuters reports that English was not his first language (seemed more like it ran a fairly distant second).

They've invited him back for an actual interview about the job as data cleanser, but maybe they should give this Guy his own show ... Please watch the video.
