A CORPORATE CEO taking part in the TV series where bosses spy on their workers has been punched very hard in his richly-deserving face.
Roy Hobbs, CEO of Yum Burgers, lost fourteen teeth from his smug, patronising face while filming the ‘final reveal’ for the popular Channel 4 series Undercover Boss.
In the morally confused show, an executive gains the confidence of their employees by pretending to be a fellow poor person, then spies on them for a bit while it is recorded for the telly.
43-year-old Hobbs had ingratiated himself with diligent maintenance man Stephen Malley, and had planned to congratulate him on stirring toilets for six quid an hour with the desultory gift of a free trip to Thorpe Park with as many Chupa Chups as he could eat.
At the end of his ‘journey’ Hobbs said to Malley: “I’m not actually an out-of-work kidney donor called Nobby Yonquist, I’m Roy Hobbs, chief executive of Yum Burgers.”
Malley responded: “You lying piece of shit.”
He then hit Hobbs in the face, knocking him over the back of a chair. Hobbs’s head hit a glass wall on the way down, prompting momentary concern that he might have been killed.
Lying on the flood covered in blood, Hobbs croaked that he was going to offer Malley a free trip to Thorpe Park.
Malley replied: “You can stick it up your fucking arse, you scumbag.”
Undercover Boss’s team of editors are currently working around the clock to salvage an emotionally-uplifting story from the resulting footage.
Editor Tom Logan said: “We may just have to cut the end scene altogether and just splice in a picture of some nice puppies in a meadow.
“It’ll be a bit out of context but still, they are very cute puppies.”
