Did you know that Apple and Sam Sung used to be together? No, not like that, but a man named Sam Sung was, funnily enough, an employee of Apple. At least, until recently.

Last year, a photo of an Apple business card of an employee named Sam Sung went viral after it was tweeted by user Shaun O’Toole.

The photo, which has since been deleted, listed Sung as a specialist at Apple’s store at Pacific Centre in Vancouver.

After the story took off online, The Huffington Post confirmed Sung’s identity, although he declined to comment on his overnight fame because of Apple’s strict media policy.

Now, a year on, CNBC reported Sung has left Apple, with Vancouver-based recruiter Victoria Welsby tweeting he is now with corporate recruitment firm Holloway Shulz.

Again, Sung has declined to comment, but 10 minutes after Welsby’s tweet went live, he replied on Twitter: “Uh oh… What have you done @Victoria_Welsby?”
