Talking OOPS! BBC Confuses Job Applicant with I.T. Expert Live on the air!

See the Story Here

In an ultimate "Whoopsy Doodle" BBC 24 News inadvertantly interviewed a job applicant live on the air thinking he was an I.T. expert and wanting his reactions to the recent verdict in the Apple vs. Apple case.

The surprised job applicant believed it was some sort of aptitude test being administered by the studio and seems to have had no idea he was actually being broadcast across the country. He continued to field questions, even commenting on the future of internet music downloads before the intervew finally ended and the mixup was uncovered.

No word yet whether he actually got the job.
