    I really enjoy him for his creativity. Most people can relate to the message he is trying to send. It’s a jungle out there for job seekers and other life challenges

    The character works because he totally believes in himself and thinks he’s quite smart and quick on his feet. Totally hilarious.

    So Channels TV decided not to acknowledge the source of the video clips or footages that they used……… that they even blured out the name is just so not pro like they said they are. Give to Caesar what belongs to him.
