* This happened to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Goma Guy Goma]]. He was at [[Creator/TheBBC the BBC]] Television Centre for an interview for a job in their IT department on May 8, 2006. Somebody thought he was Guy Kewney, who was there for a live interview regarding the Apple Computers v. Apple Corp lawsuit, and dropped him in front of the camera. Now [[OhCrap aware]] that he was in a live situation, he decided not to cause a scene and did his best to answer Karen Bowman's questions. This presumably inspired similar events in ''Series/TheITCrowd'' when Moss, appearing on ''Dragon's Den'' under a pseudonym, is mistaken for an MP and taken into an interview about the Iraq war.
