Who remembers the Gap Yah guy? Back in 2010 (jeez, has it been that long?) he was the funniest geezer ripping into privileged gap year students. It seems as if the video came out of nowhere but planted a flag in the territory for viral sketch hits that thousands of Youtube accounts are trying to replicate to this day.
The ‘Gap Yah Guy’ as he’s known on the inter webs is otherwise known as Matt Lacey. The good news is that Lacey is back in a brand new sketch that deals with workplace nepotism. The bad news is that the Gap Yah character is long gone. Maybe for the best though, right? The sketch has been snatched up by The Makers channel, see the link at the bottom of this article.
The sketch tells the classic story of competing against a candidate that already has an ‘in’ with someone at a company. Conventional wisdom tells us that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know but if you’re running against someone with this attitude, you’d call it an unfair advantage.
The sketch group have come a long way since “Chundering everywahhhh”.
interview process, it mocks the extraordinary lengths employers will make candidates go to just to get an interview: “Congratulations on getting this far. We had the ten page application form, most of which is in arabic, the three hour literary, numeracy and aromatherapy exam, the interview day, the interview night, the text interview.”
All that for them to place the burden of decision on the candidates, which one will get the “posish”.
