Jan Molby upset Waitrose havent heard of him after comedians supermarket prank

A prankster inadvertently led to Liverpool midfield great Jan Molby calling out Waitrose on Twitter.

Comedian Troy Hawke, whose viral videos include hilarious interactions with confused customers and staff, was poised outside one of the supermarket's stores for his latest stunt. Standing by the Waitrose entrance and politely welcoming customers to the store, the joker's antics led to management coming outside to see why he was there.

Explaining he was from the "Greeters Guild", the funnyman added: "I've been asked by upper-management to basically enhance the customer experience. I am surprised you have not been told. It was arranged by a chap called Jan Molby, if you drop his name." But clearly the staff were not familiar with the adopted Scouser.

Following the release of the video, Waitrose's account replied to the footage on Twitter. They tweeted with a link to their latest job vacancies: "What a faux pas on our part! While we hadn't heard of Jan Molby, we love your passion for enhancing the customer experience and might have just the job for you… how would you feel about a green jacket?"

Molby jokingly took exception to this, writing in response: "Hadn't heard of Jan Molby", along with an emoji of an exploding head. The passmaster was also backed up by Hawke – aka funnyman Milo McCabe – who tweeted: "Jan I'm fighting tooth and nail for an apology on your behalf. They had the audacity to claim that they'd 'never heard of you'."

And after B&M Stores weighed in and suggested an apology was due to the spot kick king, who scored 42 out of 45 penalties in a Red shirt, Hawke added: "Some heavy artillery on our side here @JanMolby this apology from @waitrose is coming midfield warrior I swear it."
