What’s the most embarrassing situation you can picture yourself in? Maybe something private, like shower-singing or looking at weird pictures online, right? Well, this guy was caught cheating on a skype interview lip syncing while a friend recited the answers to the interviewer on the other end. We’re all for “friends till the end,” but this might be taking it a bit too far.

The video starts in the middle of the interview and it’s clear as day that the guy talking isn’t him. The interviewer, who was close enough to listen more clearly, said that he could hear the other person talking. He also pointed out a low muffling sound that the applicant himself was making while trying to move his lips.

The interview is for an IT management job, which the interviewer describes as a “very senior level position where (the interviewee) needs to manage the entire instance”. As painful as it is to watch, the recruiter goes on to politely tell the applicant to reflect on whether this was a good and sustainable idea for the future. 

The ever-confident applicant did not have anything to say after being caught red-handed. The interviewer goes on to say ‘I’m sorry, you’re not going to continue this interview process.’ ‘Going forward I suggest you not take like this. I mean you need to be very formal, at least practice before you take the interview for these kinds of things.’
