British electronics chain, Currys, has apologised, after job applicants were left 'humiliated' after being forced to perform a David Brent-style dance during a job interview.
Alan Bacon said he was told to dance along to a Daft Punk song during the interview, which, he said, was 'like a scene out of [BBC comedy] The Office'.
The 21-year-old told BBC News he was 'incredulous' at being asked to dance as part of the selection process for a role at the Cardiff electronics store.
"I just felt so embarrassed and uncomfortable," Mr Bacon said. "I ended up dancing to Around the World by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers."
Currys has apologised and insisted the dance routine was not part of any official recruitment process.
"We are very sorry to those interviewees impacted on this occasion and would like to invite them back to attend an official interview where they will be given a proper opportunity to demonstrate how they can contribute to our business," the company said in a statement.
