Am thinking of that college kid who made the job application video that went viral

Was it 10 years ago?  When the college kid made a video showing his achievements but which had clearly been editied. It showed him bench pressing like a bazillion pounds and zipping tennis balls a thousand miles an hour and similar achievements, and he sent it to prospective employers to demonstrate what he can do when he puts his mind to it.  A malicious soul in HR shared the video with friends and it went viral and he was mocked a lot, even in the press.  What an unfortunate thing that was.  I admire a kid willing to put himself out there to find a job, and what a shame that a 22 year old is held up to the world to be mocked.  I wonder where he is today, and hope he is doing well and is a good person and uses that experience to show compassion for others.
