Stranger agrees to be job referee for Hamish and Andy

HAMISH and Andy found the 'best bloke' while calling a random stranger to ask if they'd vouch for them during a job interview.

Hamish called 'James' to say he was going to a job interview and need references for the job.

"I've just written down a random number and I just thought I'd call it to see if it was a real number... it's your number," Hamish tells James.

He says to him if someone asks if you know Tim Barnard can you tell them you know me?

"I'll say I know you from way back, I'll say you're a ripper bloke... I've got you covered," James says.

Andy then follows up by posing as an employer checking Hamish's reference.

Things got a bit complicated for James when Andy's started grilling him on Hamish or 'Tim's' qualifications for the job.

The pair eventually let James in on the joke dubbing him "the best guy in the world".
