Remember Guy Goma?

Remember Guy Goma? The story goes like this. Guy Goma was at the BBC for a job application and the BBC thought he was Guy Kewney, the person whom they wanted to interview for a live show. The clip (watch it here) has become a classic. In the end, Guy Goma did not get the job at the BBC but he became a superstar. He appeared in various talk shows in the UK. There's a website dedicated to him called The Wrong Guy. He even has his own Wikipedia entry. Now, he is auctioning off his lucky blue shirt that he wore during that BBC interview. Proceeds will go to Oxfam he says. There's even a Youtube video of the BBC interview with a remix of the music from a classic children's television programme 'Round The Twist'. And oh, about his failed job application at the BBC, well, thousands have signed an online petition to give him the job. Guy Goma rocks!
