ID Tip of the Day

Maybe you should know who your interviewing before you stick em on the air. So as the updated version of the story goes. This guy, named "Guy" was at BBC for a job interview, and for a TV interview there was another guy named "Guy" who was supposed to be on air, well supposedly the wrong Guy made it on air. The result is hilarious, Guy's first look says it all. It not even like the two Guys even look remotely alike, one is a beefy black Guy from The Congo, and the other is a pasty white Guy from England who looks exactly like a pasty white guy from England.

Truth is stranger than fiction.®

This is one bizarre story. Too bad the taxi guy's accent was so strong I only picked up a word or two, but the look - now that was priceless!

And yet, somehow, all of his answers made sense. BBC was basically giving him pseudo-rhetorical questions and he obviously knew what they were wanting him to say. BUT, I love how he performed better than the BBC host who kept tripping over her words!

Jay, I am shocked - shocked! - at the notion that news organizations would try to create news, rather than report it.

okay, not really.

I'd also add that if you see a guy, approximately 6'1", dark buzzed hair, very well dressed :-), walking around with a collar and dog tag reading "Cheddar Parmer," there's a chance it might not really be him.
