Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Computer expert and editor of Newswireless.net Guy Kewney has described his astonishment at seeing the BBC interview a complete stranger in the mistaken belief it was him.

Who is this Guy?
As a bearded white man, he was even more surprised to see himself presented as a clean-shaven black man - with a thick French accent.

The mix-up had occurred when a BBC producer had gone to collect the interviewee from the wrong reception. As a result, instead of collecting Guy Kewney for a TV interview, the producer mistakenly collected Mr Guy Goma, who was there to attend a job interview.

Hoping to get the job, Mr Goma then found himself being ushered into a studio and fitted with a microphone.

He then met BBC consumer affairs correspondent Karen Bowerman, who began to fire questions at him regarding the recent Apple Computers court case. Applying for a job in Data Support, Mr Goma of course proceeded to gamely answer all her questions, and successfully winged the entire interview in front of people watching all over the world.


Spectacular! Watch this hero in action here:



What a Guy!

GUY G LOOKS AT CAMERA IN DISBELIEF.

…hello, good morning to you.

Guy G: Good morning.

BBC: Were you surprised by this verdict today?

BBC: A big surprise?

Guy G: Exactly.

BBC: Yes, yeah. With regards to the cost that's involved do you think now more people will be downloading online?

Guy G: Actually, if you can go everywhere you gonna see a lot of people downloading to internet and the website and everything they want. But I think, is much better for the development and to improve people what they want and to get on the easy way and so faster if they are looking for.

BBC: This does really seem the way the music industry's progressing now that people want to go onto the website and download music.

Guy G: Exactly - you can go everywhere on the cyber cafe and you can take, you can go easy. It is going to be very easy way for everyone to get something to the internet.

BBC: Guy Kewney, thanks very much indeed.
