Twitter | Hamza Mahi

Hamza Mahi is currently going to college at the University of West London. He explained to Buzzfeed News that while he was walking to class a few weeks back, he was stopped and asked if he would mind having his photo taken for promotional purposes.

Mahi explained to Buzzfeed...

"So we take the pictures then we talked a bit about what course I do and that's pretty much it. He told me he might use our picture for the website and made me sign this paper."

Then, a few weeks later, a friend reached out because he had seen Mahi on university television in this ad.

Which received this response from Hamza himself...


Since the discovery, Hamza's tweet has been retweeted over 18,000 times. People thought it was hysterical.





Some suggested legal action.




And it turns out that Hamza isn't the only one.



The University of West London released this statement.

"We have reached out to Hamza to clear up this misunderstanding.

When we photographed Hamza we asked him for some comments about what he loved about studying at UWL, explained how we would be using them and included them in the form he signed.
We really value feedback from our students and it has helped us to become a top 50 UK University. We'd love to speak to Hamza to fix this and to make sure he is happy."

The viral status of this ad is likely worth way more than the university ever hoped for.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
